Splitting from its ancestor, the hextower has evolved a unique morphology. More mobile than its ancestor, it walks slowly along the sea floor, occasionally stopping and then lowering its mouth into the sand, sucking out detritus and such, and then spitting out the sand afterwards. It also feeds on dead carcasses, as well as the fields of gildea. Besides possessing thick skin, another defensive evolution is a series of circular organs that ring the top of its body and pick up scent chemicals in the water. It uses this to avoid hexdarters. Once fully grown, it spawns eggs out of the top of its body every other week.
Its four stilt legs are capable of bending slightly, allowing it to lower and raise its main body at will. The remnants of its ancestors front legs have modified into four tasting tentacles which it uses to search the sand for edibles. A finally evolution is an organ in its body which it uses to squirt a black foul-tasting liquid out of the top of its body in order to disorient predators.
