The Highly Evolved Kia Sorento
Early in the spring of 2018, we set out to document how the Sorento is capable of surviving as a nomadic creature in the diverse range of climates and environments found across Canada. What we discovered was a surprising set of adaptations that allow it to cope with the multitude of challenges it encounters. These are our findings.
Traversing a variety of terrain is a necessary part of nomadic life in Canada. To handle the task, the Sorento has developed the ability to adapt to its surroundings by finding a foothold where others might slip.
The Sorento is able to evade environmental danger and even detect approaching predators with its unique peripheral vision that extends to reach its entire perimeter - providing 360° coverage.
To effectively navigate into the night, the Sorento has developed a unique type of adaptive vision to help guide its way. Unlike most species, the Sorento's sight does not have a fixed position - instead, it can pivot based on the direction it is intent on going.
Whether it needs to carry more food and supplies for a lengthy journey or prepare space for a litter of passengers, much like an opossum, the Sorento is able to alter its internal layout to accommodate for either.
Using an integrated network of receptors, the Sorento can perform interspecies communication to relay information about location, health and safety. It can even receive various commands in order to prepare itself for a journey.
