What if, there are more to these babies than just being cute? What if the hungry babies used to be just like the creatures from fantasy forest story and dragon story? Ever since the evil gopher stole their food, they haven;t been able to evolve and have remained babies forever. The gopher, however, with all this food, is highly evolved, which makes him powerful. That?s why it was so easy for him to take over the hungrybabyverse. So why can?t the babies evolve now? They?ve been hungry for too long. This long lasting hunger made them go from level (positive number or zero) to level (negative number). No matter how much you feed them, it will be a long time, possibly years, before a baby can evolve again.
I know it?s far-fetched, but it?s a cool thought.
