This is the first Wolfling Run of mine that's truly come to an end and the highest generation I've ever reached without something like the Highgen Generator. At roughly Generation 1000, I noticed how my dragons were aging to Youth immediately upon birth and also giving birth immediately after becoming pregnant. With that, I decided to take the run to a new world, and they survived another thousand and a quarter generations without food. The run is pretty much dead to me at this point. They aren't interesting to observe anymore, and their breeding habits are worse than those of the original Spam Norns. You could say that the run got cancer, hence the name. So, I exported six individuals, and now they're here. If the name is problematic, I'll gladly change it, but cancer cells are really the only thing to compare these Norns to.

The breed is largely unrecognizable as the dragons they descended from, from appearance to genetics. Having survived over a thousand generations with no food, they've lost the ability to gain nutrition from critters. Food gives them starch and a little bit of protein, but I have no idea what they can get fat from, or if they can even get it at all. They can't survive on land, unlike the dragons, who were amphibious, and since they don't gain anything from eating animals, they can't produce swimmerase or flyerase. There always seems to be some amount of Antigen 3 in their system for some reason, but there are never any bacteria. I may have left a few details out, but that's pretty much it in a nutshell.

They never stopped aging up to Youth and giving birth instantly, by the way. If you want to try to continue this ungodly mess of a lineage, have at it. There are probably some interesting mutations for gengineers to look at, too.

When I get my computer back I have got to run the DNA on these through GeneCompare.
