The stisnite split from its ancestor, the hexcrawler. It is now omnivorous, occasionally eating folding airbulbs when its main prey, the hexdigger, are rare, as well as any letetis that may be hibernating inside of them at night. It will crawl through the empty space left above the hexdigger's feces as it crawls through the ground, eventually finding and tearing apart its prey with its primary oral tentacles, most of which now remain tightly curled inside of its mouth for most of the time. Three of its primary oral tentacles, however, have, like its relatives, specialized and further developed their heat sensing abilities, allowing them to sense the environment around it, and along with its chemoreceptors, hexdigger burrows. Also like its relatives, the stisnite has merged air breathing tubes, both leading out into a single vent. It has evolved an elongated body shape and short legs to better help it squeeze through hexdigger burrows.
