Not camouflage, the bug like fleas in my spore rpg have camouflage!!

It doesn't have to be the same kind of chameleon camo that your fleas have. It could be plant mimickry, or simple coloration, or somthing like that.  :)

B (more fins) wins!

The mannoa attacks were unrelenting. It seemed as though the critters would never live to touch the stars. But then, some fluke of nature saved them. Some colonies of critters were being born with much larger front fins, and even two proto-fins near their tail. As these newly agile critters survived more often then their two-finned brethren, the trait came into the general population. Over time, the back fins more fully developed, alon with a dorsal fin. The frill reduced in size (as its orginial large a flappy size impaired fluid swimming). The skin of the creature became a more opaque shade of grey, although the critters were still see-thru.
The critters seemed to have been able to survive long enough to evolve defenses against the Mannoa: speed. However, the critters would have worse things to face. For the Mother Nature who had so far been so kind was turning sour. A drought struck the region.The river shrank in size, and many small mud-islands sprang up. There was less and less water for the critters to live in. This population pressure would need to be relieved somehow...


A: Develop amphibious traits
B: Migrate into the lake
C: Wait out the drought and see what happens

B: I mean why would we have just gotten fins and then just trade them in for amphibious traits?

A: 3
B: 2
C: 1

A (amphibious) wins! To all those folks who thought that we are jumping to land-based too fast... that this doesn't make them automatically land-based at all. Essentially they are just fish who can muddle around on land for a while, before returning to the water. They don't have legs yet or anything, and are complete adept at marine life. This creature is actually starting to resemble the real-life mudskipper, eh?

The drought did not relent, and as population of critters grew, a solution was required. This came in the form of rudimentary lungs in some of the critters. These creatures were able to flop around on the shore of the mud-islands. These creatures are beginning to have a more diverse diet as well. Not only do they eat phytoplankton, but island-bugs as well. Slowly but surely, this superior gene spreads thru the entire critter population.

Over the generations, the creature's average size is now 4 inches long. Its grey skin is nearly entirely opaque now. The critter has a solid niche in its ecosystem now... How will it evolve?


A: Back fins develop into paddle-feet (Still 100% aquatic capabilities, but a step closer to terrestrial life)
B: A frog-like tounge for catching those large land-insects
C: Teeth (greater variety of things to consume, more varied diet)
D: Hard plates for protection (like ancient fish)
E: More brain capacity

D- theyd look really weird, and it would stop them drying out in the hot sun.

D because they would be armor fish and in the long term we won't need to develop metal artificial armor
