Do I sense the beginnings of a Cambrian Explosion for Spuigs homeworld?
Wait, so I'm inadvertently doing something scientifically correct?

Theres nothing wrong with that, heck, it may even be a normal stage for terran style life. However this certainly isn't terran style life and its your thread to do as you want.

Plus we don't have anything in the way of legs yet.
Neither did Cyto, so your argument is invalid.  Not that we will be going on land any time soon.

Cyto? What are you talking about? nm, I'll go look it up...

No, I mean it's interesting that I managed to do something that should happen naturally, without even trying.

Just because they use iron for respiration (well, iron oxide anyway) doesn't make them metallic. Thats like saying humans and just about any multicellular animal on Earth are metallic.

Whoa whoa whoa, let's not forget who's the first one to suggest anti-landism

This is the time to go back and repent our crimes of voting for land dwelling in Flisch's thread,

Evolve/Improve Senses won!

Generation 20

((Images will be bigger from now on.))

It happened that some Spuig had a defect in their nerve cells that caused iron to accumulate into fine filaments within them.  This allows it to detect magnetic and electric fields, but only of a high magnitude, because it is such a weak sense.  The advantage to this new sense is that it is the first sense developed that does not require direct contact with Spuig, so they were able to reproduce better, and with so much food around, and its intelligence grew a little too to analyze the information.  Spuig also grew the complementary size increase, but its speed decreased.


Stats for Spuig:
Population: 4/6
Diet: Hair Weed
Reproduction: Sexual, Hermaphroditic
Habitat: Coastal Area, Beach
Size: 24 cm
Speed: Intermediate
Senses: Chemical (Weak), Touch (Weak), Electromagnetic (Weak)
Brain: 2/10
Respiration: Oxygen from Iron Oxide
Blood: none
Abilities: none



Also, you're all so silly with those sigs.
