Skippers, although they appear different, are very closely related to Bubblecaps. They live along the shores of Gamila's Islanda, using their thin, tight legs to skip across large surfaces of water and using vents to filter rising air to help them float. The third leg of the Bubblecap and the Skipper's ancestor has been shortened into a small cylindrical tail used for stability. Skippers run across lakes and oceans, capturing Hookbellies and Teki with their exterior stomach. Their digestive systems are identical to the Bubblecap's, but they are much less intelligent.
