Sandstone Basarios has only been seen inhabiting the Thunderous Sands.
Sandstone Basarios have many of the same adaptions as Basarios, however, there is a few differences between them. Unlike Basarios, Sandstone Basarios appearance has changed due to it feeding on sandstone and living in the Thunderous Sands. Now it resembles the rocks found in the environment, even matching the same temperature as them. From its change in climate, the bacteria it once produced is gone for the most part. It now can't produce any fire-based attacks, however, this has been replaced with it producing and breathing sand at foes. It can even still produce poisonous and coma-inducing gases.
Sandstone Basarios is far more aggressive than Basarios.
