Looking for a story that starts with quasi-intelligent life on an alien planet that evolve due to environmental pressure in minutes. All except for this one super-creature, who would defeat all others. It never had the 'urge to evolve'. Until one day a ship lands (humans as I recall) and is able to kill/defeat everything including the super-creature. Only then did it get the 'urge to evolve'. I read this between 2000 and 2010, but I think its much older.
I vaguely recall "Evolve" or "Evolution" in the title and the story narrative is 100% from the alien's perspective.
