Name: Crystal Worm
Ancestry: Desert Worm -> Terra Worm -> Terraformer Worm -> Crystal Worm
Creator: Webster52402
Genes Added: Sodium Compression x1, Size Increase x1, Water Retaining Skin x1,
Genes: Burrowing x1, Soil Enrichment x2, Soil Filtration x2, Size Increase x3, Mouth Tube x1, Asexual Budding Reproduction x1, Water Retaining Skin x3, Moisture-Absorbing Skin x1, Sodium Compression x1
Description: The Crystal Worm is named for the rather strange habit that it has. As it plows through the earth, the Crystal Worm would draw salt out of the surrounding earth, compressing the sodium down into sparkling fixtures of salt crystal. This further enriched the soil around it, by extracting the less beneficial Sodium, without over-saturating it with nutrients. This also allowed a unique aesthetic view, as the Crystal Worm would leave sparkling veins of the crystal behind it, in twisting coils and intricate salt crystal features.

The Crystal Worm, to make up for the withering salt that passed through it, developed a tighter water-retaining skin, allowing it to withstand the salt that passed through it, without it drying out. This also in turn allowed it to increase in size once more, becoming even larger than its Terraformer Worm brethren had been.

Name: Lightning Wolf Eel
Ancestry: Mouth Worm -> Swimming Worm -> Shell Cracker Eel -> Shocker Eel -> Lightning Wolf Eel
Creator: Webster52402
Genes Added: Basic Brain x1, Basic Pack Instinct x1, Static Sensory Nodes x1
Genes: Swimming Fins x1, Chitinous Chordate x1, Larger Body x1, Tube Body x1, Wriggling Motion x1, Fission Reproduction x1, Piercing Tooth x2, Circular Jaw x1, Meat Digestion x1, Static Building Skin x1, Static Charge Glands x1, Basic Brain x1, Basic Pack Instinct x1, Static Sensory Nodes x1
Description: The Lightning Wolf Eel is named for its unique pack mentality, developing a strong connection towards the other Eels that swim alongside it. Developing small nodes on its sides to detect the presence of the static buildup that allows the Shocker Eels their name, the Eels would use their newly developed basic brains and pack instinct therein to hunt down and join together with large groups of the Eels, forming the first true 'School' form predator.

Grouping together in large amounts, it allowed the Eels to increase their potency IMMENSELY, as a large group of them unleashing a blast of electricity could be powerful enough to take down even the toughest of the predators in the sea. They developed a particular love for the Fungus Worm that swam the seas, finding the large meal a delight to hunt, using its wolf-like attack method to bring the beast down before the group would feast upon their kill.

Name: Seed Weed
Ancestry: Verdant Algae -> Aquaweed -> Babelweed -> Stasis Weed -> Seed Weed
Creator: Jisaan
Genes Added: Basic Anther x1, Basic Carpel x1, Sexual Reproduction x1, Pollen Production x1, Carbo-Lipid Seed Covering x1, Fruit Skin x1
Genes removed: Spores x1
Genes: Photosynthesis x2, Green Color x1, Clumping Growth x1, Fast Reproduction x1, Lamina X1, Holdfast x1, Support Stipes x1, Air Bladder x1, Elongated Holdfast x1, Fat Coated Spores x1, Thermo Germination Inhibitors x1, Photo Germination Inhibitors x1, Spore Encasement Shell x1, Basic Anther x1, Basic Carpel x1, Sexual Reproduction x1, Pollen Production x1, Carbo-Lipid Seed Covering x1, Fruit Skin x1
Description: This adaptation of the Stasis Weed has abandoned asexual reproduction in favor of basic sexual reproduction, creating pollen around the air bladder, on a newly developed anther, which then gets blown off, and will hopefully land on the carpel of another plant, or the same one that the pollen originated from, if that fails.

In addition, it has developed a basic carbo-lipid layer around its seeds, and a skin to contain it, creating a basic fruit which will hopefully be consumed by another animal, allowing the seed to travel through its hopefully hospitable digestive system before leaving the body, generally a fair distance from the parent plant.

Apologies for any inaccuracies, I'm no expert on plant reproductive processes.

Name: Chisel Shell
Ancestry: Barbed Shell -> Crawler Shell -> Latching Shell -> Chisel Shell
Creator: Webster52402
Genes Added: Stomach Spine x1, Stomach Spine Extension Muscles x1, Spine Extension Muscle Strength increase x1
Genes: Half Shell x1, Barbed Shell Spines x1, Sticky Foot x2, Basic Mouth x1, Meat Digestion x1, Budding Reproduction x1, Foot Propulsion x1, Foot Strength Increase x1, Backwards-hooked Teeth x1, Stomach Spine x1, Stomach Spine Extension Muscles x1, Spine Extension Muscle Strength increase x1
Description: The Chisel Shell was an offshoot of the Latching Shell that took advantage of its ability to grip the hardened shells of its prey, sometimes even including its cousins and relatives, the other Shells. The Chisel Shell developed a sharp spine that was attached to its bottom, near its stomach and mouth. This spine was attached to a unique muscle that would shove the spine downwards, with a power that was enough to chip and chisel its way through the hardest of shells.

It was not uncommon to see a Latching Shell hanging onto a Jetstream Aggressor or other such predator, utilizing its own defense against it, as it remained beyond reach, chiseling gradually down to the soft flesh hidden within, before spearing its prey with the spine, feeding on it when the prey finally died.

Name: Traveler Eel
Ancestry: Mouth Worm -> Swimming Worm -> Shell Cracker Eel -> Shocker Eel -> Traveler Eel
Creator: Webster52402
Genes Added: Magnetic Sensor x1, Swimming Fins x1, Basic Tail x1
Genes: Swimming Fins x2, Chitinous Chordate x1, Larger Body x1, Tube Body x1, Wriggling Motion x1, Fission Reproduction x1, Piercing Tooth x2, Circular Jaw x1, Meat Digestion x1, Static Building Skin x1, Static Charge Glands x1, Magnetic Sensor x1, Basic Tail x1
Description: The Traveler Eel was the first of the creatures to ever develop anything that would give it a sense of direction. On its bottom, it developed a specialized sensor, that detected the magnetic field of the planet, and of the sea floor below it. This, in essence, gave them a form of sonar, that would allow them to pass through the sea with ease, knowing instinctively through the planet's magnetic field where trenches, hills, twists, turns, and all manner of things besides simply following the currents were. Thus, the Traveler Eel was the first of its kind, to begin gaining something that would later on allow its descendants to migrate, to utilize knowledge of the surroundings, and to find cover quickly when it was under attack.

Name: Chasm Limpet
Creator: Squigian
Genes: Pressure Resistance x2, Algae Digestion x1, Grappling Appendage x1
Description: It came from the depths. Floating up from the chasms, it latched onto the vulnerable blanket algae that covered the openings. It slowly digests the algae, multiplying over time to coat the entire blanket. It's not stupid, though, only eating enough to slow down the algae's growth to a crawl.
