Mutated future predators differ from the other future predators in several aspects of their anatomy, and in their behaviour. First of all, they have much longer tails than the original future predators. Second of all, they have armour over their heads, on their ears, on their backs, on their elbows, on their knees, on their shoulders, and on some parts of their tails. This is so that they can protect themselves against the hot sun of their desert habitat. They co-exist with the giant burrowing insect, and the future beetle, in the same habitat: the sterile Earth, which was presumably created by the ARC mogul, Philip Burton. As with the usual future predators, these are descended from an unknown species of bats (presumably, vampire bats). The will also fight with individuals of their species to the death.
