Grappling Scrimpe

From 2speccers2tools wiki

With the evolution of the Oh No Bruhs, some Emerald Scrimpes would become larger and larger to deter the Bruhs from feeding upon them. To sustain this larger size, they began to feed upon organic matter more often, but the existence of the Boomerang Scrimpe meant they turned towards feeding upon soft species of flora such as Poostalks. To take advantage of such a food, they developed several unique adaptations, giving rise to the Grappling Scrimpes. In many ways, the Grappling Scrimpe is not too different from their ancestors, with a simple eye that helps then navigate their environment while they undulate their body and four tails from side to side as they use the two fins to help steer. Their coloration has become much more brown with prominent counter-shading to help them avoid being detected by local predators.

While they do get some energy from photosynthesis, the Grappling Scrimpe now gets most of its energy from consuming Poop Flora such as the local Poostalks. To help manipulate such a food source, the two facial protrusions of their ancestor have become highly mobile and act like tentacles that can wrap around Poostalks and bring them up against the undersides of their heads, where they release enzymes to break it down so they can then absorb the nutrients through their skin. When not in use, the Grappling Scrimpe tucks in the appendages so they do not cause drag. When it comes to breeding, the Grappling Scrimpe still uses sexual reproduction, with two individuals having their rear ends connect so they can have one of their fours "tails" wrap around the "tail" of the other individual. Once this occurs, the two tails will fuse together and then detach, exchanging genetic information before splitting in two and developing into baby Grappling Scrimpes. This occurs will all four tails on each individuals, with the two Grappling Scrimpes eventually growing back the four tails.
