Name: Shell Cruncher
Ancestry: Shell Feeder -> Shell Cruncher
Creator: GeneralStoner
Genes Added: Flesh Digestion x1, Simple scent detection x1, Beak x1
Genes: Filter Feeding x1, Chitinous Shell x1, Swimming Sex Cells x1, Tentacle-Arm x1, Flesh Digestion x1, Simple scent detection x1, Beak x1
Description: The shell cruncher has developed cells that react to different smells on the tip of its Tentacle, allowing the Shell Cruncher to detect another animal. While remaining filter feeding, if an animal happens to get to close, the shell cruncher will grab it and begin to chew away with its tiny beak, slowly crunching away!


Carnivorous Snail FTW!

Genes: Filter Feeding x1, Chitinous Shell x1, Swimming Sex Cells x1, Tentacle-Arm x1, Jet Propulsion x1, Simple scent detection x1, Beak x1
Description: The shell cruncher has developed cells that react to different smells on the tip of its Tentacle, allowing the Shell Cruncher to detect another animal. Its common prey being the Algae Gut family, upon the detection of one, the Cruncher will propel itself on top of it with its simple jet and let the newly developed beak begin to gnaw away at the prey. The rest of the time they simply sit there and do as the ancestors did!


Carnivorous Snail FTW!

A carnivorous snail that is unable to digest meat. O.o You don't have a meat digestion gene, so you're still a filter feeder despite your carnivorous properties. Feel free to alter as needed, but... still filter feeder in current incarnation. Sorry.

Name: Shore Fan
Ancestry: Shallow Fan -> Shore Fan
Creator: GeneralStoner
Genes Added: Water Retention x1, Air Filter Feeding x1, Stronger Stalks x1
Genes: Rubbery Stalk x1, Filter Feeding x1, Feathery Growths x1, Budding x1, Water Retention x1, Air Filter Feeding x1, Stronger Stalks x1
Description: The Shore fan has adapted to move over to shore and take advantage of the massive amount of spores floating through the air. The Spores becoming entrapped in the leaves and those spores slowly being broken down into nutrients. The Shore fan retains its filter feeding due to the amount of water spray allowing for some nourishment still from the water.

Sorry bodhi, but I couldn't let you dominate the land biggrin.gif

Yay for urchin-like creatures. xD

Name: Barbed Shell
Creator: Webster52402
Genes: Half-Shell x1, Water Filtration Feeding x1, Barbed Shell Spines x1, Budding Reproduction x1
Description: The Barbed Shell doesn't do much of anything but lie among the sea floor. It can exist in pretty much any place, though it is more prevalent in the Depths and in the Shallow Plains than anywhere else. This nasty little creature is covered in a hard shell, using its wickedly barbed spines to give anything that seeks to make it into a meal a nasty little surprise as it rips open its mouth and soft throat with its spines. This shell only covers its top, however, and on its bottom is soft flesh, meaning that if it's flipped over to reveal its filtration system and soft underbelly, it's doomed.

It feeds through simple filtration, harmlessly pulling in various things around it, and making sure that it is undisturbed by various predators thanks to the spines. When the time comes to reproduce, it does so by a small, asexual process that causes a small bulb to form off of its soft flesh. This bulb grows slowly, into a smaller form of the Barbed Shell, without its hard and spiked shell. This develops later on in its life, as the shell detaches to float away from its parent, using the currents to spread it throughout the seas. Upon its growth and increase in size, weight, etc. thanks to the development of its shell, it will sink gradually down to the ocean floor, and a new life begins.

And now, another critter from the mind of Webster52402. tongue.gif

Name: Desert Worm
Creator: Webster52402
Genes: Burrowing x1, Mouth tube x1, Soil Filtration feeding x1, Asexual Budding Reproduction, x1
Description: The Desert Worm is just that. A worm. It squirms through the ground, digging through the soil using the long mouth tube that connects its head to its rear in its long, extended form. This tube filters the soil that passes through it, and feeds the creature by cleansing the soil of any debris, flesh, etc. that passes through it. Thanks to its presence, as well, the soil that it passes through becomes more nutrient-rich, and capable of supporting life.

In order to reproduce, the worm uses an asexual process called budding, where a smaller worm grows from the main parent, to detach and start its life anew, in the shelter of the underground.

Nice job, Webby. I'm closing this topic with this post, and will post the new topic sometime this weekend. Most likely tomorrow. I've got all the sketches except for the newest two done at the time of this posting, as well as the updated map. Thanks for your contributions, everyone, and Era 2 is on its way!
