Trunksucker
The Trunk-sucker is a small, flightless, plump, noisy, gliding, arboreal flyer from the Pocket Forests of Darwin IV. They feed on plaque-bark tree sap with their butterfly-like proboscises and are the preferred diet of daggerwrists. It comes in a number of different species.

These gliders soar from tree to tree, attaching themselves with a powerful suction organ and claws. Once attached to a trunk, the trunk-suckers are apparently impossible for the daggerwrists to remove. It is necessary for the hunters to hook them on the wing, using their honed wrists or lower jaws, a feat which challenges both species' aerobatic survival skills.

Groups will rest at what are nicknamed roost-trees.
