Unlikely Evolution, Part II

Steve: You're really bad at picking these, dude. The Mimic is excellent.
Zack: This isn't about how cool you think a Mimic is, Steve. This is about their ecology.
Steve: What's wrong with their ecology? They live in dungeons and eat adventurers.
Zack: First off, they evolved to resemble chests full of treasure. Secondly, their prey is adventurers.
Steve: First of all, they're magical, duh. And secondly, there are a lot of adventurers in D&D. If you think about their turnover rates while adventuring they've got to be like a third of the population.
Zack: A third? How would there even be any unexplored dungeons or ancient ruins left? Everything would be mapped and looted.
Steve: Two words, bro. Fireball. Trap.
Zack: Alright, alright. But let's stick to the Mimic. Some of them are intelligent and speak languages. What a hellish existence.
Steve: I wonder how a treasure chest mates.
Zack: You ever seen Russian nesting dolls?
Zack: Imagine that, only with treasure chest jizz everywhere. EVERYWHERE.
Steve: I'll take a pass on imagining that.
