I am very drawn to the Marginated species and I'm researching everything I can find about them. Does anyone know why they developed the 'skirt' in the back? What is the purpose of the skirt in the wild?

I watched a video a while ago saying that the skirt holds them in on the mountains and hills they live on
I think I saw the same video. Since they live in very mountainous & hilly areas it's thought to give them a little extra surface area to keep them from tipping over backward while they're going uphill.
