Competition between native fauna of the Columbus continent and newly arrived species from the Polo Island chain via a newly ermerged land bridge has caused aggresive adaptations over time. This is most easily seen in the now extinct species Scorfus Graphus, its ancestors were for the most part lightly built solitary foliage feeders. How ever in response to the threat of the newly emerged Tyranous Undatus a light built active predator that specialised in the hunting of animals with a similar build as Scorfus, Scorfus emerged as a well built and slightly larger herd grazer.
How ever these adaptations still resulted in a high mortality rate especially amongst young individuals. Eventually the Species Scorfus Graphus took on a new course of evolution that resulted in the creation of Scorfus Comaus an aggresive scavenger. To compensate for the greater and more active exsposure to predators such as Tyranous Undatus Scorfus began to develope armoured plating along the head, neck and sides.
