A Spade-Nose is a quadrupedal organism indigenous of Darwin IV which lives in the local forests. They are named for their blue-hued, spade-like nose. They are common prey to the Forest Gulpers. They have small mouths located on the top of their shovel-like snouts, resembling a blowhole on Earthly aquatic mammals. They shovel up soil with their snout, then tip their heads back so it falls into their mouths. They then filter out small invertebrates with a small bladder in their throat. They then eject unwanted material (dirt, stones, etc.) through another small hole in the bottom of the throat and consume the small animals.
