An descendant of the Hexastalker emerging some 19 million years after that species, the Landling is a small (20cm long, 300 gram) omnivore that feeds on tubers, spores, leaves, seedlings, carrion, pinwheel bugs and other small animals. It is fairly adaptable, living in forests. It has a slight dorsal ridge and a scaley hide. It's most notable feature is one that gives it an advantage over the various other creatures that it shares it's home with: it gives birth to young that, while soft skinned with only a few erratic scales, are fully capable of surviving on land. Their maternal instincts are limited to giving birth in holes, under logs and other hidden locations, though the odds of a landling newborn surviving to adulthood are far better than a fry of many other species.
