Smaller, leaner, faster with an indiscriminate appetite, the Tisso Stego is something to be extremely cautious around. Instead of leaves it's turned to a liquefied diet dissolving the insides of particular trees or when the opportunity arises, living creatures. It's build may have become more delicate than it's predecessor but with spines and fangs equipped with a potent neurotoxin it can paralyzes anyone who's dared to get to close before dissolving their now immobile victim from the inside out.

Fan strain concept inspired by 'the isle'
drawn in Procreate

the other stego is like:
"dude we are on the same team!!"
Tisso Stego:
"yay but your insides are yummy. XD"
