Scientific Name: Rus pseudoarbicans
The skitter leaf is a relative of the pond skater that shed its wings and adapted to life on the ground. With no residual traits of its airborne past, the skitter leaf can neither fly nor skit across the surface of the water. The wings have since evolved into the leaflike structure on its back, which serves to hide the skitter leaf through mimicry. It appears quite effective, as few predators can see through this clever disguise.
The superb amalgamation of juicy meat and leafy greens ensures that the skitter leaf will be the new spinach!
