Still thinking of some
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Universal Abilities)
-Very good Swimmers
-Smart enough to have there own communities and appoint leaders and even make certain Technologies
-The Serpenta are Warriors, thus they are incredible fighters
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Diet)
The Serpenta are mainly Carnivorous and prefer to eat the other creatures of the Ocean however they will still eat the various Plants located near the bottom of the Ocean so that they may get the nutrients and vitamins that there bodies need. The Serpenta also eat in large amounts since there body is almost always working hard to fight against the water. A large part of the Serpenta Culture is there food.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Culture)
The Serpenta are a Warrior like Race, they respect the balance of there World and fight to show the other Clans that there way is right. Around the age of 5 in Human years the Serpenta begin training so that they may be ready to serve there Society. The Serpenta however have several ways to see if a young Serpenta has become Mature. One way is for it to kill another Clans Warrior or to hunt a creature bigger than itself and return with it. This also gives the Serpenta the chance to find a mate and make a family.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Religion)
Although Warring with each other the Serpenta all believe in one “God”, this is Braxis. Although not really a god it is an existing creature on there world. The Serpenta believe it to be a “God”, because of its massive size and how it keeps everything in balance.  The Serpenta also see it as there guide in times of War and in times of Migration. The Serpenta always offer food offerings to the Braxis, they do this by catching live Food and herding it into one position where the “God” Braxis is, if the food is accepted the Braxis its it and the Serpenta believe that they will be granted Strength or good luck. If the food is rejected they are dishonored and will be brought bad luck.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Way of life)
The Serpenta are a Nomad like race. They build there Cities by massive Geysers on the bottom of the ocean. (By massive I mean HUGE!) The Serpenta will only build there cities in nearby cliffs or canyons, since they know Burrowing to deep could cause the Geysers to explode. The Geyser’s not only serve as a source of Warmth but many types of creatures and Vegetation grow nearby thus providing the Serpenta with a large amount of food for there population. The Serpenta don’t really build houses they simply tunnel into the cliff cracks and make themselves comfortable inside them. However they do gather pieces of rock and other various things and add technology onto there houses like large blue domes that generate large sources of light this attracts creatures and makes easier hunting.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Hunting)
Serpenta hunt by ambushing larger prey or trapping it and getting it killed by the environment.  However the Serpenta always bring Net like devices that are shot out of a wrist band. When the Net is shot it is kept under the control of its user by a control panel on the band. With a press of a button the net will close up and catch whatever is in its way. Another button gives a deadly shock of electricity and then there’s the stunning electricity that makes the victim unconscious.  Another button reels the net in with the cord that is attached to it.

Another weapon that is used is the Trident, this weapon is sacred to the Serpenta and training in the use of one is a must. A Serpenta never throws its Trident however for fear of losing it, and many of the Alpha Males in a family pass it down to there Strongest Son.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Reproduction)
The Females lay eggs which are warmed by the Geyser’s heat. The only way a Female may lay eggs is if it has a Male Partner. However Females only seek out the strongest of Males to be there mates. The Male’s Traits are given to the Female by a ritual that involves the two of them turning there backs on each other. The Male then inserts his two Iken Fins into the Females two back holes and after a few minutes they are done.

A Female usually only lays 4 Eggs at the most and the birth rate is very high. The chance for a young hatchling to grown into a mature Serpenta is almost 100% since the Serpenta are very family oriented.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Events/Note-BGC means Before Great Collapse)
(Creature Stage)
1500-1000 BGC- The Serpenta finally became what they are today. However the Serpenta has yet to meet others of its kind. Over the years the Serpenta hunt by themselves and form small groups. Meanwhile the land above them is slowly breaking apart as the ground is covered with lava and burnt earth.

1000-0 BGC-The Serpenta begin to form small societies and are strictly a Nomadic People where everyday life consists of following the abundant sea creatures for food.
(Tribal Stage)
0-30 AGC-The Serpenta realize that Leaders must be born and Cities must be established. They begin to form into large Clans. The Serpenta now litter the Ocean of there small planet. Above the Ocean and on the Land the Two main Islands have cracked and now litter the Planet.

30-100-Serpenta Clans begin to go into each others Territory, the Clans begin fighting each other for dominance. Several Clans that are near the Islands retreat onto them. They are not seen or heard from again.

100-1000-The Serpenta have managed to form into a few large Clans. These Clans after a massive War decide to put aside there differences and unite with each other to reach a common goal. And that is to find out what is going on.

(City Stage)
1500-2000-The Trident Council is formed. The Leaders are the Chieftains of all the Clans. A large city is made and Serpenta civilization begins to prosper. However because of there war like nature they are forced to build Gladiator Pits where Warriors would go to test themselves.

2000-4000-The Serpenta advance in Technology and have built Machinery. The Machines are not harmful to the Planet or its inhabitants. The Trident Council now only has one goal and that is to unite all the Clans.

4000-4020-The Clans that are not under the Trident Council’s Flag decide to rally together and in a large battle they fight the Trident Council’s Forces known as the Tel’Gol. The Tel’Gol massively outnumber the Rebel Forces and are much better trained. The Rebel Serpenta fall back towards the largest Island on the World and begin to retreat onto the land. A Elite force of from the Tel’Gol are sent to pursue them, this Force is known as the Tridents Edge. The Tridents Edge finds that the Land has changed and that the Clans that had fallen back had evolved into Land creatures. Although not much a difference the Serpenta from old had lost there long tails and had gained legs as well as slightly smaller tails.

4020-4200-The Trident Council begins to ready itself for war. There Land Dwelling Brothers appear to have better Technology than them. The Trident Council relies on the Tel’Gol once more to do there Fighting and on the beaches of the largest Island known as Runda a massive battle happens. The Tel’Gol put up a good fight but are driven back. There land dwelling Brothers who call themselves the Serlan, have large weapons that could attack from long ranges. But the Tel’Gol managed to get up close but were still beaten back by the Serlan’s Melee Weapons which were much like theres, except the Serlan favored Swords.

4200-5000-The Serpenta continue to advance., now they have large armored suits that cover there bodies and protect them from harm. They wield guns and there melee weapons are upgraded and more powerful. Scouting parties report that the Serlan are at the same Technology level as them.

(Civilization Stage)
5000-5500-The Serpenta and the Serlan engage in an Epic Battle that happens all around the world. Neither side wins and both sides agree to end the War. Now the Serpenta and Serlan form the group known as the ST. Which stands for Sword and Trident. There combined might allows them to build massive cities on there World and still keep the balance of nature.

Wow, that was a lot of info! One thing which seemed a bit dangerous to me was to put eggs next to a geyser. What if it erupts? Otherwise, it's a solid pice of work, I must say! I might draw it for you if I find time to do so.

That was quite detailed and very creative.  I might try to see if I can think me up some original creation like that.

Edit - Also, feel free to Serpenta creature to the SporeWiki Creature Database. PM me if you have questions. :)

Hahaha no, I couldnt think of much when it came to there reproductive system so I just kinda winged this one. This past week I have had a massive headache and severe writers block so I havent been able to come up with much more. However I think by the end of next week I will have some good information...
