So in my book series, there is this planet called Axaca. However, it is very different from most of the galaxy in that its flora is almost completely fungal. Here are some things to know:
- Trees are replaced by giant toadstools
- Bushes are replaced by medium-sized fungus resembling coral
- The ground is full of mycelium
- The only plants are mosses that act as grass for this planet (and are eaten by herbivores and some fungi)
- This planet is home to some kind of sentient life (the dominant species is the anthropomorphic Chupacabra, but there are 2 others I need your help with coming up with)
- Animals (and thus sentient life) evolved from fungus and moss
Now for the question I need your help with: what would the biology of the wildlife (including the 2 other sentient species) be like if everything evolved from plants and fungi instead of heterotrophic bacteria?
