Palm Canartree

From 2speccers2tools wiki

Some populations of Canartrees got even larger, becoming the Palm Canartree, which would become among the largest flora species in dingus's inland habitats. They also managed to spread onto the Dingus Beach, where they proved to be a game changed for the local ecosystem. The rise of Radioactive Fauna had caused the piss palms and their close relatives to struggle, and the arrival of the Palm Canartrees(who can grow much more quickly and require less resources) would lead to these species to become extinct. The females of this species are multicellular, with a well developed skeleton to support their larger size and an extensive root system to obtain nutrients. The many feathery branches help gather sunlight while the beak flowers on top are where they develop their ovaries to release spores. Male Palm Canartrees have hardly changed at all from their ancestors. Much like their ancestor, the male Palm Canartrees have a semi-developed skeleton to help support their bodies and to act as muscle attachments. Males also continue to hunt small prey on the wing, with a simple eye to help chase down things as well as to avoid predators. While males can still use photosynthesis to gain energy, they primarily get it through eating other organisms instead. Males still land on the beak flowers of female Palm Canartrees, which will result in the females developing spores in their oviducts before eventually vomiting them out. The spores will be carried by the wind until they land somewhere else and become a new Palm Canartree, though males will emerge from the ground early on and take to the air. Much like their ancestor, the Palm Canatrees have a tolerance for radiation, since certain groups of fauna in the region are radioactive.
