Splitting from its ancestor, the terranite has taken to life underground, exploiting the vast tunnel system dug out by its primary prey, the burrowing provuci. Some adaptions include the enlargement of their front legs for digging, while the other smaller, near functionless legs of its ancestor have been absorbed. Another major adaption is the setting aside of two mouth tentacles that have evolved dozens of tiny hooks on their tips for latching onto prey and dragging them back into their mouths. Its long serpentine form allows for easy movement through tunnels, while "fingers" on the tips of their sensory tentacles allow for a greater view of world when on the surface.
Living underground for the majority of their lives, terranites only surface when it is time to mate. Eggs are then laid within the safety of the modular gelatus, where they eventually hatch within a few weeks. The young then go out into the world, hunting down younger burrowing provuci before they are able to take down full grown ones. They will eventually reach their full size, as well as achieve sexual maturity, within two to three months.
