The Tadpole Interleukin is an awkward creature that is constantly worried about being attacked. While it does have some known predators in the area, the Tadpole is naturally hard to catch. This, on top of their overly cautious nature, gives them relatively long lifespans compared to other species in the forest. In Jesse's research notes he writes, "While exploring Durken forest I noticed an anxious little critter emerge from the murky waters of a small pond. It seemed to find interest in the Octa-Fruit dangling from the nearest tree. I thought to myself, is it looking for a meal or a friend? It was at that moment that it discovered my presence and scurried back into the pond. I'll have to be a little quieter next time."
