| Name: Rust Plow
Ancestry: Flesh Worm-> Rust Plow
Genes Added: Silicon Oxide Absorption x1, Silicon 'Plow' head x1, Algae Carrier x1
Genes: Carbon Plant Digestion x1, Tube Swimming x1, Fast Swimming x1, Mouth Openning x1, Silicon Oxide Absorption x1, Silicon 'Plow' head x1, Algae Carrier x1
Description: The rust plow worm was an aid to the Rust Algae cause, tilling the soil, spreading the rust, and bringing the algae it carried on it's back to new frontiers.

| Name: Gill Algae
Ancestry: Rust Algae-> Gill Algae
Genes Added: Symbiotic Lifestyle x1, Silicon Oxidation x1, Sticky Slime x1
Genes Total: Fast Growth x1, Photosynthesis x1, Silicon Oxidization x2, Nutrient Storage x1, Symbiotic Lifestyle x1, Sticky Slime
Description: The Rust Algae was adept at fusing oxygen with silicon, an ability that most Silicon-Based Life could appreciate. As life was still developing on Alkamia , most creatures had no specialized breathing organs, most simply allowed oxygen-rich water to seep into their skin and bodies, and almost none actually filtered the water to transform it into pure oxygen. By allowing Rust Algae to grow on themselves, many silicon-based lifeforms found themselves becoming much more able-bodied, due to the algae photosynthesizing additional pure oxygen that was fed directly into the worm's flesh. Eventually this algae, spread from parent to child via the breeding process it's self, developed special adaptations to better aid it's symbiote, and thus better aid it's self (it could only grow so much on a single creature, and only spread via it's symbiote's breeding, thus when the host-worm did well, the algae did well).

| Not completely unrelated, I'm referencing someone who was referencing Sunni Islamic mythology. Anyway, I'm just going to re-rail this thread with these guys:
Name: Shifting Sands
Genes: Coordinated Behavior x1, Silicone Flesh Eating x1, Motile-Cilia-Like Hair-Based Movement x1, Cilia-Like Hair Inter-Personal Binding x1
Description: A hive-based incredibly tiny predatory creature, the Shifting Sands are capable of rapidly moving away (via the effect of running in one direction on a surface that is also running in the same direction) in an expanding circular pattern, causing a rush of water, and prey. Upon 'swallowing' their prey the hive moves in the opposite direction, covering the prey animal. Once in position, the upper level of creatures begin intertwining their cillia-like mobile hairs, causing the hive to look almost like a rock from the proper distance, and causing the prey animal to be incapable of escape.

| *Is confused* Shaitan is the Islam translation of 'Satan', also known as 'Iblis' in the Quran. Apparently a Djinn or 'Jinn' in the Quran, he was cursed to Hell for refusing to bow to Adam because he thought of himself as superior. To quote directly: "I am better than him. For you made me of fire, and Adam of mud."
Though God granted him reprieve until Judgment day, upon which Shaitan swore to lead all the faithful astray.
Unless I caught a completely unrelated reference. lol

|Yeah, but after a specific devil, a devil that became a god... It also evolved on a very odd planet... I guess next time I'll name the creature in a way to make it clearer.|

|You named the worm after the Devil? o.O|

| Name: Shaitan
Ancestry: Ringed Worm -> Shaitan
Genes Added: Carbon Flesh Eating x1, Burrowing x1, Size increase x1
Genes: Carbon Plant Digestion x1, Tube Swimming x1, Mouth Openning x1, Silicon Rings x1, Carbon Flesh Eating x1, Burrowing x1, Size increase x1
Description: An ambush predator. The Shaitan was capable of burrowing into the lake bed to hide from sighted prey. Upon detecting prey with it's incredibly primitive 'senses', the Shaitan would launch from it's hiding place and swallow it's prey whole, much like the Eclipse worm.
Two cookies and a ninja if you know what I'm making.

| Name: Flatworm
Ancestry: Flesh Worm -> Flatworm
Genes Added: Carbon Plant Digestion x2, Flat Body x1
Genes: Carbon Plant Digestion x3, Tube Swimming x1, Fast Swimming x1, Mouth Opening x1, Flat Body x1
Description: The flatworms are a subtly different variaton of their ancestors, the flesh worms. They swim low to the lake floors, avoiding detection by any would-be predators.
Ancestry: Ringed Worm -> Ringlet
Genes Added: Sedentary Body-Form x1, Silica Endospores x1, Silicon Rings x1
Genes: Carbon Plant Digestion x1, Tube Swimming x1, Mouth Opening x1, Silicon Rings x2, Sedentary Body-Form x1, Silica Endospores x1
Description: Encasing its eggs in a silicon crust, the ringlet is able to hatch directly onto its preferred food, and lives a sedentary lifestyle feasting off of the plant matter, slowly but surely.

| Name: Eclipse Worm
Genes Added: Carbon Flesh Eating x1, Size Increase x1, 'Bite' Strength Increase x1
Genes: Carbon Plant Digestion x1, Tube Swimming x1, Fast Swimming x1, Mouth Openning x1, Carbon Flesh Eating x1, Size Increase x1, 'Bite' Strength Increase x1
Description: The first real predator on Alkamia, the Eclipse Worm was, as one might expect, not exactly the fiercest creature imaginable. Capturing prey by simply swimming around them, the Eclipse worm used it's increased size to trap smaller worms inside of it's body. By closing it's mouth firmly shut the Eclipse Worm was able to quite effectively trap it's prey within it's body. Simply waiting for starvation to kill it's prey, the Eclipse worm would often spend extended periods of time immobile and without food. Because of this, the Eclipse Worm only indulged in eating meat to supplement a rich meal of algae.

| Name: Crystal Saw
Ancestry: Crystal Leaves -> Crystal Saw
Genes Added: Sharpened Leaf Edges x1, Discus Structure x1, Petal Structure x1
Genes: Photosynthesis x1, Crystalline Structure x1, Prism Light Refraction x1, Thin Structure x1, Sharpened Leaf Edges x1, Discus Structure x1, Petal Structure x1
Description: The Crystal Saw, ironically enough, was the species of Crystal Leaves that came the closest to looking like an actual flower off the bat. Though it was not nearly as bright as the Prism Flower, the Crystal Saw made up for it by gaining a likeness to its namesake, its individual petals sharpened to a fine edge. Thus, these small, thin crystal discuses would often times cut any creature unlucky enough to brush up against them.
