Cheesey Semoeba

From 2speccers2tools wiki

A population of Giant Semoeba in the South Cold Ocean have assimilated The Bigger Cheese into their cell instead of digesting them. Due to this, they have taken on not just their photosynthetic properties, but also their silicon spikes, which can now release spite as a defense mechanism. They lay on the surface of the ocean thanks to containing a small amount of methane in their cell, dangling part of their body down to filter feed smaller organisms that may brush past them. They go dormant during the fall, resting in the sediment around the sunlight zone, and start producing methane again during the spring, floating to the surface and forming massive algae blooms. If a cell cannot create enough methane to stay afloat, which isn't that much, they will inevitably die.
