File: 219 KB, 1500x1270, kaskus_evo2.png [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

KasKus, developing further and expanding, begin reinforcing their outer sun-gathering appendages with utilized mineral deposits, resulting in fibers reinforced by copper and iron. The reinforcement allows the thick shoots of the plant to grow to larger heights while increasing its size, bringing more sunlight in for energy. Below the ground the Kaskus pushes it's fruit further away and closer to the surface, making gathering it much more attractive than uprooting the entire plant. The spikey leaves at the bottom grow in number and develop sharp tips using the ore located deep in the earth. This disuades predators from reaching it's vunerable base. The KasKus develops de-centralized storage, keeping additional water and metal resources in large vacoules out further underground along large roots. Expanding beneath the oasis it begins growing up through the earth to emerge underwater and sprouts begining shoots.

The desert stalker's new feeding habits have prompted it to evolve vicous, 4-pronged claws that, although they do make sand-walking slightly more dangerous due to increased vibrations that may attract sand warms, allow the stalkers to attack in a more vicious manner, holding down their previously-sleeping prey, ripping open carapace of more heavily armored meals, and digging shallow holes to get at buried prey. This allows them to be more agressive in their night-time attacks.

Wespar have now de-evolved their flight packs, and have adopted leaf looking wings for flight. A new tactic over the years has developed- they can lurk under the water, using their gill like organ, which used to support their flight pack, as a breathing apparatus. they then hold their leaf shaped wings above the water, waiting for herbivorous creatures to graze on the odd looking plant. Then, they pounce and kill their prey by paralysing them with their newly evolved tail, which has a venom tipped stinger on its end. They then bite the jugular of their prey, ending its life swiftly. They then proceed to flame their food, for easier eating and easier absorption of nutrients. They are often found by shorelines and banks, and nests can often be found around areas dense with kaskus.

The sub species of ripper sandonis starts to live in large groups. These fast predators fly over the dunes, constantly in search for prey. They communicate with each other trough chirps and pheromones. When one finds food, it starts to "scream", calling all his mates to the food source. The same effect happens when one of the creatures dies. They emit a cloud of pheromones that drive the sandonis to a frenzy, causing them blindly attack the threat.

As time moves on the underwater KasKus shoots reach to the surface of the water, developing air filled bladders to allow the shoots to float on the surface. The underwater shoots develop into a reinforced flexible tendril to facilitate this and develop a stronger base to anchor the tendril. The Kaskus develops larger, armored storage vacoules located deeper within the earth to protect from predators. The root system becomes more advanced and actitvely seeks out other large roots of nearby Kaskus plants to interconnect with.
The landbased body of the Kaskus develops as well. The tops of the sun-gathering shoots begin growing frail leaves out of the central hole in the shoots to gather even more sunlight, these wide leaves currently retract during the night.
Along the outside of the ridgid shoots large hooked thorns develop. Providing a landing spot for creatures to potentially pearch. The Kaskus develops a more bitter alkiline sap that it exsudes at its base and at the tips of its protective spines. Spines have grown longer and additional rows grow out of root system to furter prevent predator intrusion.

With it's hind legs gone forward Rockdonis can now use them as another set of arms. Rockdonises Big Forearms only have three claw like finger so they cannot be used for things that require finesse.

File: 39 KB, 531x576, gliding wespar.png [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

Some wespar develop long wide wings, with grooves that guide air trough them more swiftly. These wings allow the creatures to conserve energy, as they can glide trough the air currents and winds with minimal thrusts.

They hunt by flying very high, then waiting for a suitable prey to come in to their sights. They have evolved very acute eyes, which allows them to spot prey from many miles away.

When they have noticed their prey, they start gliding towards it, slowly at first, but as they descend they gain more and more momentum as gravity pulls them towards the ground.
When they are close to their target, they ignite their "engines" to gain a final thrust of speed.
They extend their sharp claws, and slice their victim with uncanny accuracy. Eyes, tendons, everything soft will be targeted by these small swarming organic jet-fighters.

They also spit digestive acids to these wounds, causing crippling pain in the victim. Eventually, the prey will succumb, due the acidulous burns in thousands of small incisions.

The wespar will gorge on their kill, mate, lay eggs and then take off again, starting the whole hunt all over.

I know, but I think that this way the "jet engine" might actually be plausible.

Kaskus continue to develop root interconectivity and a basic symbotic relationship with other plants of its species. A primativly developing hive mind driven by chemical interaction allows the plants to equalize contents among the armored vacolues of their interconnected fellows. When two large interconnected plant systems connect a breif negotiotion period occours while assets are collaborated. Smaller plant systems are simply absorbed. This comingled access of resources allows Kaskus plants to grow their less developed neighbors quickly and facilitates the Kaskus plants expansion away from the central water source at an accelerating rate.
The waterborn KasKus develop violet colored flowers to absorb additional light to maintain root expansion. The Flowers fold up at night to protect themselves. The flexiable tendrils develop inflatable water sacks along their length designed to manuver the flowers into a better position as sunlight coverage changes throughout the pond.
The tops of the Kaskus shoots reinforce and reshape their retractable leaves, producing a more geometric pattern. In responce to continued senses of predadation from outling plant sections the Kaskus plant is evolving TO SUPPORT WESPARS. The openings on top create a curved lip trough around the outer edges. The Kaskus plant fills this trough with nutrients favorable to Wespar physiology. In the center, the plant produces stamens that release hormones designed to attract Wespars.

The Sand Devils have started preying on larger more agressive species. The loss of their horns for mating has been replaced with a savage rear spike.

An interesting strain of cho develops, the mimic cho. In it's normal state, it looks like cho in every way, mimicing all the various strands including tall cho, creeper cho, spiked cho and water cho.

The main difference with this plant is it's reaction to touch. After a few seconds it will snap closed, wrapping up any creature that decided to try and make a meal or a home out of the plant and crushing them or a limb with it's powerful leaves.

It's underside has woven together in a tighter formation including more metallic strains for support and the 'spore pods' on the upperside are actually small spikes that impale the creature and rips it apart as the inner walls undulate and the outer walls squeeze.

They grow in the same areas as their mimic'd plant and showers its own, smaller spores on the real plant that ride along with the real spores, ensuring that they grow in the same areas.

The only immediately obvious difference between a real plant and a mimic appears after the mimic has made a feeding. It's main bulb turns red with the blood it stores for a period of time after draining a creature, but only for a time.

Prepare to be underwhelmed by my crappy paint skills.

The Carnivore Desert Kaskus has sunk it's pitchers underground in order to trap unwary animals. It lures them to the trap by leaving water in the bottom of the pitchers. As the animal descends the steep sides of the pitcher it usually falls, as soon as an animal touches the bottom area of the Kaskus the leaf lid (shown raised in the picture) snaps shut trapping the animal.The water in the trap is then sucked back into the roots by the plant (to save for itself). The symbiotic Kaskus sandonis then wait for the animal to die or weaken of exhaustion/starvation/dehydration and then swarm from their tunnels to feed. The digestion process of the sandonis breaks the animals into simpler components that the plant can use. The sandonis also clear out indigestible matter from the bottom of the pitcher.

Some army sandoni develop small spurs on it's back-legs, that allow it to sense vibrations moving trough the soil. They have also learned to cause these vibrations themselves by pounding their front legs to the ground rhythmically, and then tracking these vibrations.

This off course attracts sandworms. Because of this, the army sandoni with this trait live in areas with less worm activity, such the oases, mountains and plains, although in the later two, there are still the smaller landworms.

You think you can hide from the worms?
Desert, plains, mountains, no matter where you try to hide, it wont matter! Everywhere is worm country!

The landworms live in much more complex environment than their sandworm cousins. The soil they burrow trough is far from uniform, and to cope with this complex underworld, the worms echolocation ability becomes more sophisticated. While the sandworms can sense vibrations from far away, they have only a vague idea of the nature of their source.
The land worms on the other hand can form complex and very accurate 3d picture of their surroundings in their head based on the echoes of the vibrations they produce.

They can even tell what kind of creature is causing certain types of vibrations, so they can attack the easiest targets such as social burrogs, instead of going after sand devils, who would put up a bigger fight.

The gliding wespar develop a curious organ, that shoots shards of crystalline stomach acids at high velocities towards their target.

The organ works by igniting a mixture of liquids, that explode within the tube like organs, propelling the acidulous shards forward with high speed. These tubes are constantly lubricated by specialized glands, to ease the firing procedure.
The shards are made in a specialized, multi chambered organ , in which the stomach acid is gradually formed into sharp spikes, that are then fed to the "gun" organ. Forming one spike takes about 15 minutes for the creature, and they can hold approximately 30 spikes within their "magazine". Because of this, the creatures use the spikes sparingly.

In this new species a thin leafy membrane has grown from the Cho bulb to the waxy leaves. In severe sandstorms this membrane lifts the Cho from the earth up into the sky.

At this altitude the Cho has no fear of predators and receives access to sunlight (something it would not have beneath the sandstorm) and takes advamtage of the altitude by pollinating and spreading seeds far and wide.

The biggest problem is water which the Cho stores in it's blue base during it's flights, which can sometimes last for days depending on the severity of the sandstorm beneath it.

However this lifestyle has meant that the Flying Cho have lost access to the metallic defence of their cousins, as the heavy metal would drag them down.

The high frequency vibrations of the worms generate massive amounts of static electricity (applies to the sandworms as well), but on land worms, the electricity is channeled, although not in a controlled fashion, through the metallic bumbs on the worms carapace.

This electric buildup is released when the worm bursts from the ground, unleashing a miniature lightning storm. Bolts of electricity race trough the outer layers of the worms armor, and jump to anything that is in the immediate vicinity. Even sandworms cause these kinds of electric storms, but they are far less spectacular than the ones their landworm cousins generate. The electric bursts can usually stun or even kill the prey of the worm, saving it the energy needed to subdue it's meal.

A splinter species of the sand devils emerges.
These new creatures are smaller than their ancestors, and they have adapted to a new environment.
They live near the mountainous terrain, where the warm thermal winds occur often. The jet wespar flock to these areas, as they use these winds to gain height. The shooting devils have specialized in to hunting these small fliers.
As they lack proper necks, they instead have to tilt their whole bodies upwards, in order to shoot at the flying critters.

Their tails have grown and gained strength, so they might support the creature's weight. Their eyesight has also improved.
However, the greatest improvement has happened to their spine launching organ. They have developed a specialized set of lungs with extremely powerful muscles under their carapace, that is able to generate immense air pressure, that they use to "sneeze" the spines outwards.

To channel these spines, they have developed a sturdy muscular tube, that extends under their topmost jaw. The spines are lubricated by poisonous mucus when they are squeezed through this tube at great speeds. The tube allows the creatures to be extremely accurate with their spines, easily being able to hit targets several hundreds of meters away.

They use these spines to shoot down the wespars flying over them, and then eat the impaled creatures.
They can use these spines to kill other creatures too, but as they are smaller than the proper sand devils, they are often out competed by them in other niches.

A new wespar species emerges.
The ancestors of the of the tapping wespar developed a curious behavioral trait. They would tap the sand rhythmically, and as a juvenile sand worm eventually emerged, they would implant their eggs to the creature, as the worm is quite helpless against the fast flying parasites.

The tapping wespar's secondary arms have developed into long thin claw tipped appendages, that they use cause vibrations trough the sand, and in doing so, luring young sandworms to them.

They have also developed powerful acidulous poison, that they use to melt trough the softer parts of the thick sandworm skin. The host is temporarily paralyzed, just for long enough to allow the wespar to implant it's eggs.

This parasitism is only lethal for the very young worms, but it strains the bodies of the adults as well. After few weeks of feasting on the worm flesh, the wespar nymphs burst from the skin of the worm. They can time their departure to a moment when the worm is above the sand, as they can sense the electrical pulses dispersing from the worms emergence from the sand. They use their jaws and powerful acids to dig trough the worm's flesh, and escape their warm cradle.

The shooting devils adapt to the new maneuverability of their prey by further developing their spine shooter organ. The organ's muscles have grown, as well as the "lungs" that generate the immense air pressure. The sand the creature launches and stores within it's carapace are very small. They are however launched at such speed that they are almost equivalent to bullet. Also because of their small size, the shooting devil can spit these shards at increased rate, and store up to thousand of them inside their carapace.

The devils can shoot extremely rapidly, over 10 spines/second. They simply fill the air with sand spikes, making escape from them mostly a matter of luck.

Their forelimbs are now mostly used for stabilization, as they move by slithering around on their strong tails. They live in small colonies, at the bases of mountains. Normally, they are quite inactive, just basking in the sun and waiting for a wespar swarm to attempt to utilize the thermal winds. When the wespars arrive, the devils spring into action. They start all spraying the air with shards, each one focusing on their own area of the sky. The shard streams rarely cross, as the creatures co-ordinate their barrages quite well.

This co-operation all but vanishes when the time to claim the kills comes. They fight viscously over the food, usually the most strongest coming on top, and eating first.

Even still, the main role of their intelligence is to avoid the dam wasps when they are young.
They are at the height of their smartness in their juvenile phase, they learn fast, adapt fast and think fast. As they grow older, this intelligence starts to fade.

As the worms became smarter, so did the wespar. Unfortunately intelligence alone quickly became insufficient at beating the quickly learning worms.
The wespar were forced to form hunting groups, that would together trick the worm more successfully than any of them could do alone. This co-operation forced the wespar to develop their social intelligence further.
They communicate with each other trough the bioluminescence of their wings and chirps.

They groups are usually formed from the wespars who shared their host, so in essence, they are siblings with each other. Although they can join up with other unrelated wespars.

Some jet wespars develop longer wings, allowing them to better utilize even weak thermal winds to gain height. These wespar move in smaller groups than their swarming ancestors. They glide in the heights, monitoring the ground bellow, and when a suitable target reveals itself, they begin to descend towards it.
When they are about 300-800 meters away, they start shooting their poisonous spines towards the creature. Their spines are longer, and they will fracture when they strike their target. Within the spine is stomach acid, that causes horrible pains and begins to dissolve the victim, while also wrecking it's muscle tissue with powerful enzymes.

The wespars will glide over it's kill, and wait for it to die. These wespar are somewhat bigger than their cousins, and their massive wings and light weight allow them to rise to the heights with minimal winds.

Eventually, the mimic wespars form relatively complex social groups. They are usually led by the most experienced individuals.
Their bodies change too, as by working together, they could also easily prey on other creatures than the worms. They begin to live longer, and they grow in size.
The two rear wings pairs atrophy, and start working mainly as communication organs.
They become more intelligent, as the social interaction fuels their brain growth. They are now slightly smarter than dolphins or chimpanzees.
The sandworms, although not their primary prey for food, serve a vital role for their reproduction. The mimics still hunt them, but with strange obsessive behaviors. They have developed simple rituals that they partake in every time they are about to hunt a worm, and they seem to pay strange respect for the lumbering behemoths while they lay their eggs within them.

They also have started to prey on older worms, as they are far easier to trick than the younger, more intelligent ones. As this parasitism is almost never lethal for the worm, thus it doesn't have as great effect on their reproductive success it would have if they were younger, the worms aren't as fast to evolve counter measures to the parasitism of the now almost sapient wespars.

Ok, decided to do a tiny clarification kind of thing.

The Creeper/Spiked cho (same plant) grow mainly around permanent Oasis or other sources of regular water, usually taking up much of the space near the edge not occupied by other flora. When there is a significant disturbance (such as structural damage) it wraps itself up in a hard spike shape and sinks slightly into the ground, exposing only it's armoured sections.

Many of the lighter creatures can walk on these plants to avoid sandworm attention since it's vibrations will be absorbed by the plant.

>flower + other missed evolutions
The creeper cho have evolved a giant water storage spire growing from it's center. During the night the Cho's bio-luminescence is refracted and rainbow lights are shot out all over the desert.
Mimic Cho, grow in the same areas as any other type of cho and take on it's characteristics. Mimic cho spreads itself by latching it's spores unto other cho spores and copying several things from it's host, most times consuming the one it latched on to, ending up growing in the midst of other real cho it did not latch on to.

Mimic-Creeper cho can sense nearby prey and if a small enough creature steps on it, it will close up and squish it inside, what looked like spore shooters revealing themselves to be spikes that it uses to tear apart the captured prey inside.
The mimic cho has also evolved a spire, however this spire does not hold water, but more spikes to shoot at prey it senses(max 25 now).

Oasis. This enables the Kaskus to detect more information indidiacative of its surroundings. This

increases the demand on the Kaskus plants collective hivemind and results in the development of a

Located deep within the earth this Kaskus component handles the rudimentry chemical-driven inteligence of the hivemind and facilitates processing information and responding to threats throughout the network of connected Kaskus and assimilated plants.

However they cant land, and that makes them completely reliant on their swarm for nourishment. They have syringe like spikes on their wings that attach to their host swarm and share nutrients. When the Great Wesper is flying at super high altitudes this allows the normally high metabolism of the bullet wesper to slow down dramataically and feed off of the Great Wesper. At low altitudes it deploys the swarm, and feeds them sensory information form itself, and they reciprocate. No telepathy, its actually radio frequency. The head of the Great Wespar is highly evolved. Being able to sense all spectrums of light, elecromagnetic spectrums, and even a grasp of magnetic fields it processes this and broadcasts it to the swarm. When they have located prey, if need be, it can fire off a single massive spike at hypersonic speeds. The frequency of the spike launches is dependent on how much the swarm can feed their host. Finally, it has long feeding tubes dangling from its wings to nourish other wesper that are currently not docked on or within.

Some social mimics begin to revere the sand worms as the rulers of life and death. To them, this is only natural. They are born from the worm flesh, and the worms will devour anything that dies on the sands.

They have also formed a strange relationship with the massive, mostly immobile worms. A relationship that resembles some sort of sick and twisted worship. The wespars lay their eggs within the skin of the worm, but they also bring the worm ample amounts of food they hunt, as some sort of sacrifices. These worms who would otherwise die of starvation, now continue to live and grow, as they are being fed by their parasites.

The shooting devils (IG, could we get a better name? I can't come up with anything.) have developed even bigger "lungs" for properlling their shards, but they haven't really been able to counter the smoke screen the jet wespar utilize.
Sure, they can get the occasional kill, but not as many as they used to get. Their infrared vision won't help them, as the smoke cloud of the wespar is as warm as the creatures themselves, masking their body-heat.

Because of this, some shooting devils have started hunting other creatures as well. Their sand devil cousins might be bigger and more fearsome, but the shooting devils have the range advantage now, in addition of them working in groups. They can fill a creature with sand-spines extremely fast, allowing them to quickly kill even bigger creatures.

These hunting packs have started migrating from the mountains to the plains and the arid edges of the deserts. There is a strict hierarchy within the group. The strongest male leads them, eats first and gets the females. Disputes between the creatures are settled with duels, fought with their sharp arm blades.
They are rarely lethal, but it is rare for both the combatants to come out of the duel without wounds.

The Houyi needed to get around better, faster. A third leg gave them a tripod like stance which had unforeseen benefits such as the ability to stretch up high and see over small obstacles, thus delivering their deadly barrage more effectively. They also can now "swim" just under the surface of the sand by pulling their limbs in close to their body. It is always a giveaway when they are on the move though due to their carapace sticking out like a shark's fin.

The splinter Houyi species quickly adopts a new niche. They become ambush predators, lurking under the sand or in the cover of rocks, they burst only when a suitable prey passes by. They quickly unleash a barrage of rather long poisonous javelins, that do short work out of most critters.

Their third limb made them poorly suited for swimming in the sand, as they were less streamlined. Their long tails also often got in their way, and thus it became much smaller. They use their tails to dig their ambush burrows.

They move by quickly skittering over rocky terrain, or propelling themselves with their tails on dunes. They prefer the rockier areas, as their body structure makes it quite hard for them to move in sand. They are smaller than their two limbed cousins.

The Devil Houyi (no longer sand devils.) Have become the largest of their species, Standing about three times as tall as any other specimen. They have lost the ability to spew spines, but gained the familiar tripod shape that is begining to spread across their kind. They have also gained massive sword like arms to hack away at the most heavily armored of enemies. Interestingly they do not prey on any other Houyi. Indeed, an entourage of the other Houyi species can be seen following a massive Devil Houyi into battle. As the giant rips and destroyed and is the focus of the defender, the smaller creatures launch spikes with impunity.

Note that although the landworm you put there is about the right size, the proper sandworms can grow much bigger. They truly ancient ones can weigh several hundreds of tons. They don't move around much, as they are basically massive hills in themselves.

evolved enough to deserve a fresh new name, the albatross cho develop.

the plants slowly develop a massive wingspan, and supplementary structures grow to support the huge wings.

cells along the caudal vines adapt to suck moisture from the air around them, negating the need to absorb fluids from the earth. these cells are also able to pick up trace minerals from wind-blown sand.

it is rare to see an albatross cho on the ground, save for seedlings planted on corpses by hunting wesper. much of their long lives are spent on the wing, their rudimentary chemical processes steering them towards pockets of humid air to feast upon.

A symbiotic relations ship has formed between the sandworms and the mimic wespar (Name IG? I need a name! I can't think of any for them!)

The mimics use the massive immobile sandworms as incubators for their young, and as home analogues. They feed the massive creature with the prey the manage to kill, keeping the worm alive. This feeding allows the worm to continue to lay eggs, as it no longer needs to expend energy so it could get food. The wespar leave the juvenile worms alone, and lay their eggs inside the softer parts of the massive ancient worms.

This parasitism hardly effects the worm, as the worm is thousands of times larger and heavier than the larval wespar feasting on it's flesh.
This relationship benefits both parties. It allows the wespar to breed easily, while also allowing the worm to continue to lay eggs even in it's later life.

The worm populations begin to bloom, as these massive creatures produce hordes of their somewhat intelligent spawn.

After mating, the female Sandcoral usmal undergo a metamorphosis where they gain a pair of wings so that they can fly across the desert to find a suitable location to lay their eggs. For a a few days every four months, the skies are
filled with these females.
