The beast has moved into softer soils and sands, easier for it to slide through the underground with its snake-like body. Its limbs have shrunken, and are almost useless. Lack of large prey to satisfy its hunger has lured it back above ground. Using ambush tactics, the beast literally snatches food right up underneath their feet, dragging them underground to be devoured.
I love drawing worms <3
The beast has gone fossorial, now digging its way through the underground. Its front teeth have fussed together to form large shovel-like tusks, which it uses to shovel whatever its nose deems worthy of eating into its crushing jaws. It is believed the large tusks also are used as a form of defense against the pincers of gigantic beetles, which are its favorite meal. The front feet have also adapted to tunnel life, with the first three toes fused to better dig and the feet shape similar to a paddle, to move the up heaved dirt away. A peculiar mutation is that of the hardened shell now formed on the bridge of its nose, which is believed to help protect the softer part of the skull.
While not commonly seen above ground, the beast still proves to be a pest. Broken pipes and electrical cords are a common issue, as well as large sinkholes, as the tunnels the beast creates eventually collapse.
