Much happened in the pond in the last millions of years. The slowblobs, as they were increasadly attacked by the longslithers, had to change their chances of getting away. It was a small population of slowblobs who had a strange mutation, they had an extra pair of flagella. With this pair of flagella it was easier for them to navigate, as well as it gave them a boost at their actual speed as well. With this addition they could sometimes escape the longslithers, who later on evolved into spikeslithers. To the addition of speed, the slowblob was able to feed on larger amounts of blobbers in slower time so they grew in size, which gave them another edge against the longslithers.

On the other hand you find a new threat in form of the poisonspitter. This creature first spits poison at its enemy, to later on pull it towards itself with its tentacles so it can absorb the specimen. Also, the longslither developped into the spikeslither, who now has a whiptail with powerful spikes on it.

Well we are, only that we have few cells, (as the spikelither and spitter too), so we can be considered multicellular. I just draw in this way since we only got tremorsense... i used the grey lines to descendant that we are multi, and to show a primitive nerve system...
