Glowing Wiggler

From 2speccers2tools wiki

As the chains of Nuclear Worms thrived, they began to have certain cells specialize and always go in a certain order for maximum efficiency. At the very front, the first cell has decided to handle food, having the cillia becoming forward facing to help manipulate food only. The second cell has developed a simple photoreceptor to detect predators so the whole colony can respond before it is too late. The Glowing Wiggler colony still retains cilia to swim, but the last cell has lost these and developed a flagellum to assist with swimming. While the first cell has specialize to devour nutrients exclusively, all members of the colony are still capable of taking in detritius to some extent and the nutrients are shared with all cells in the chain from the detritus and their fusiotrophic metabolism. The Glowing Wiggler is still moderately radioactive, able to burn smaller predatory cells if they try to attack. This protects them from smaller predators such as Bruhs but they still fall prey to things like the legopigs, which are large enough for the radiation produced by the Nuclear Worm to be useless against them.
