Crawling Radioplate

With the rise of the Horrible Baloon, some populations of Recycling Radiobush began to develop adaptations to avoid not being ripped apart easily. This occurred by them covering their lobes in plumbochitin which acted as armor. Once they began developing this material, they then also encased most of their tendrils in plumbochitin, turning them into small claws that help them crawl along the substrate. This was resulted in the populations becoming the Crawling Radioplate, who has become adapted to feeding on decaying organic matter and small microbes in the soil. The Crawling Radioplate retains many traits from their ancestors, such as the cell walls and the lead around their nuclei which have not changed at all. while they still take in ambient levels of spite from the air around them while passively gaining from radiation, they no longer do photosynthesis. The Crawling Radioplate still takes microbes from the soil, and latches on the carcasses of other organisms which they slowly break down for nutrients. Unlike their ancestors, the Crawling Radioplate has small clones of themselves bud out of their rear end, before crawling away to live on their own.
