It seems like everyone did. Every single time, it's in one of the top three.

Come on guys, I'm sure you know what it is by now, right? Just look back at all the creatures, and ye shall see....

Something that whistles while it hunts/eats.

Alright, sorry for the loooooooong delay, but life has kept me busy, and my priorities are Sagan 4, and the Blargbells. I'm going to get started drawing now.

And NOBODY can figure out what "we whistle while we work" is?! You're kiddin' me!  :o

Not trying to be offensive (seriously, I'm not), but if you just take a peek at all the different creatures so far, with the knowledge that "we whistle while we work" was one of the top three, I think (hope) you will figure it out.  :)

This is a grrdnhss. To Earthlings, that would be "garden hose". Well, that's the closest English translation there is, anyway.
The "garden hose" is an odd creature. Completely mindless, they only have a basic nervous system. Their closest earth counterpart would be a sea cucumber, or a sponge.
Their entire body is a stomach, a liver, AND a lung. The end you see in the water is the "mouth," whose entire purpose is to suck harder than a Hoover. (get it? Hoover? The vacuum> Nevermind.)
Anywho, the mouth will suck in water, be it salt, fresh, or polluted. As soon as it is sucked in, it goes through a painfully long process (depending on the size and age of the creature), in which every last plankton, chemical, mineral, and even oxygen is caught and absorbed by tiny hairs totally filling the animal's inside. After quite a long time, it will be spat out again at the end, as completely pure water (albiet, possibly a bit tasteless). This water has no minerals, no debris, no NOTHING. (The way that the "garden hose" completely purifies the water is a thing that is actually NOT studied by scientists. Because, to be honest, do you think anyone really cares?) The grrdnnhs actually digs using the same water it spits up, just moving in whichever way the water carves out first, until it reaches land. This creature is always found by water, and every once in awhile will spit big globs of "excrement" back into the water. This mineral-rich "poo" is attacked by bottom feeders and plants alike, both desperate for the nourishment it has inside of it.
Some interesting facts about this creature are:
1. Very poisonous skin, much like the poison dart frog on Earth. Even the things that CAN eat it, won't, because the skin is (ironically), just like rubber. Only the most desperate of creatures will try to dig one of these up for a snack.
2. Many Blargbells will use this creature to get to pure water, in case pollution has made the water source undrinkable. THey just need to dig one up, stick it in water, and then wait for the pure water to come out.


PS- All thanks to my brother, who actually thought of this creature months and months ago.

Hi Blarg. ;D
Voted for "Brrr...". Can't wait to see it. :D
Out of curiosity, just how many kinds of creatures will populate the Bell's planets once it's complete? ???
Any estimate? :)

Seems like the Blargbells are gonna be living in the most diverse habitat of all. ;)

About the shotgun things: Do the bells have computers? If so, the TI's could teach them how to build the ships from scratch. :)
