Grazing Jello-Fish

From 2speccers2tools wiki

With the evolution of the Oh No Bruhs, some populations of Dingusian Jello-Fish would respond to the predation pressures by developing a larger size and small bits of armor embedded in their skin made of calcium carbonate. They would also began to shift their diet, beginning to feed on more solid foods. To take advantage of such a diet, they would develop a beak-like tooth on the lower lip of the mouth to help snip off bits of food. All of these changes would lead to them splitting off into a unique taxon known as the Grazing Jello-Fish. When it comes to their anatomy, the Grazing Jello-Fish has not changed too much from their ancestors if you remove all the small bits of armor embedded in the skin. They still have a circulatory system of hemooranganin to help support their multicellular bodies with the circulatory system still surrounding the digestive system. The Grazing Jello-Fish also gets a decent amount of their energy from radiation, and can 'zap' predators with their radiation. If that does not deter a threat, the Grazing Jello-Fish may respond by trying to bite them or merely relying on their armor to protect them. Unlike its ancestor or close relatives, however, the Grazing Jello-Fish spends a lot of their time feeding on solid foods, specifically bits and pieces of flora such as Poostalks or photosynthetic microbes such as the Hook Cheeses or Screenpolyphs. The upper lip of the mouth helps grab food while the singular tooth on the lower lip helps bite off chunks so they can be ingested within their blind gut. The blind gut of the Grazing Jello-Fish has become larger so it can consume more food and thus get more energy since eating flora provides less nutrients than things such as active microbes. Once they get as much energy as they can from their food, the Grazing Jello-Fish will vomit up the waste products in the form of a pellet. Their fusiotrophic metabolism helps provide the Grazing Jello-Fish an energy source to fall back on in the rare cases they may not be able to find their primary food source.

When it comes to breeding, the Grazing Jello-Fish has not changed much from their ancestor, as they release "gametes" into the water. When they encounter those of another individual, the two "gametes" then fuse together and then split into two developing Jello-Fish.
