Found in moist humid environments, Kalaks use their long whip-like tongues to manipulate objects and catch food. They mostly feed on fruits, but will prey on smaller creatures as well. Their stretchy throats and unhinged mandibles allow them to swallow food that is a few times larger than it's head. They are fast runners, but if any predators will chase after them they use their long tongues to swing in nearby trees to help them evade predation. During the mating season they will build large nests using their tongues to manipulate the building materials, the males with the largest nest with the most unique materials gets the most mates.
