Generations pass. Our life remains the same, a slimy fish in a muddy lake, but now one thing has changed. Our eyes have developed and grown more complex, up to the point of seeing vague outlines and tinted colours. We can finally see the plankton we fed on, as a cloud of moving particles. With this blessing, came the 'sight' of two things. Food and danger. Something else was in the lake with us (I'm going into a detailed narrative for this.)

The little Guppy swished his tail and lazily drifted forward through the mud-clouded water. He was near the floor, and heading towards a large cloud of plankton. Swish! As he darted into the cloud to feed, the mud awoke and grabbed the poor Guppy. He was dragged down into the mud, and ripped into shreds by something....

(Back to outside narrative mode.) A new threat had come to us. The plankton we feasted on lived near the muddy floor where the remains of all dead animals fell, though beneath the mud lay a deadly animal. This animal is called a Newt, and resembles an elongated frog with rows of needle-like teeth. They fed on us when we fed on the plankton, though for reasons unknown they never left the mud, so above the mud we were safe. This brings up a problem, as our food was down there. If we stayed away from the Newts, we would either have to crawl up on land or try feeding on something else, the floating plants for example. The Newts were the new danger we could see, now what is the food?

A) Feed off the floating plants that float off the top of the lake, therefore changing your diet.
B) Grow stouter and larger fins to climb onto land, away from the Newts. (This will lead to faster swimming and start the progress to a land creature.)
C) Focus development on your size, making yourself discouraging to the Newts.
D) Grow minor poison glands that make you taste sour, discouraging the Newts.
E) Focus change in your skin. (This will lead to another vote discussing what to do.)
F) Change the pigment in your skin to reflect the environment around you, hoping the Newts don't see you.

*The option will be selected when there are three votes for it. Please do not post unless you have positive feedback, and keep the posts nice, tidy, and neat. Thank you for playing, I wish you best of luck.

EDIT: I changed one of the options, hope you guys don't mind.

It's a lot quicker to type normally than to move your finger over the shift button constantly, meaning you eat slightly more food in your life time. That extra food you have to eat could feed a whole nation of chinchillas!

Not as clear-cut as the first one but still pretty obvious that D will be of most assistance wherever we are.

What will you do?

B. It's hard to see underwater. I think becoming a land creature will complement our first evolution the best.

That would only last till we change enviroment, like if we go onto land for example. Oathinblood said we change color to match our CURRENT enviroment, not any enviroment. (Right?) (F)

Edit: Thats not fair!   (Good job. ;) ) What kind of change are we looking at?
