Ancestor:Descendants:

Evolved from fraboohorn to compensate its slow movement, the frabooball is not very physically different from its ancestor. With its way to protect and bury in the soil, some groups of fraboohorns developed shells harder and able to protect totally its body, folded on its interior. These, under the form of a ball, were able to move faster by the volcanic hillsides and outskirts, rolling until its base.

Its antennae are stronger and act as auxiliary limbs, used when the creature is protected, to give thrust to roll. After pushing, its nodules quickly fold and move to the inner part of the shell, as it does with its head, protecting them from damage. In this way, these creatures were capable of to quickly spreading through the equatorial region of Glicker, near to mountains, but their ancestors still live on in Huggs Temperate Forest and Volcanic.

Most of bubblehorns is famous by its beauty and capacity to imitate the environment. This bubblehorn follows the same rule. The frabooballs acquired a white skin, in order to reflect most of the solar radiation and protect them against the extreme heating, preventing the water loss. They can frequently be seen in the forest, but in the desert they are easily confused with rocks or sand mounts, used by them as a complementary source of nutrients.

For its reproduction, they deposit eggs into nutritive sacks, carrying them under its shell. Like its ancestor, they can eat these sacks in a scarcity food condition.
