Radiofeeder Scrimpe

From 2speccers2tools wiki

When the Dingus Radiomold evolved, they presented a relatively abundant source of food but one that most critters only fed on occasionally. One population of Boomerang Scrimpes would however adapt to specialize on eating them almost exclusevly, giving rise to the gigantic species known as the Radiofeeder Scrimpe. The Radiofeeder Scrimpe in terms of anatomy can be best described as a Boomerang Scrimpe that took its anatomical traits to the next level. The one simple eye on top of their body still helps the Scrimpe navigate as they swim by undulating their body and four tails from side to side. Unlike their ancestor, however, the two facial protrusions have become absolutely gigantic and have taken over the sole role helping the creature steer and make turns while the two side fins have become reduced in size somewhat. The giant facial protrusions also allow the Radiofeeder Scrimpe to feed on even more food at a time due to the large surface area. They do this by plating their faces down on a mat of Dingus Radiomolds and then releasing enzymes to break it down into a organic soup that can be then absorbed through their facial skin. The species gets almost all of their energy from consuming organic matter, typically that of the Dingus Radiomold, and barely gets any energy from photosynthesis so they have nearly lost their green pigments and thus appear brown for the most part. The Radiofeeder Scrimpe also takes in the lead from the algal mats they ingested and incorporate it in their tissues so their skin is tougher and thus less prone to being damaged. While the Radiofeeder Scrimpe almost exclusively eats Dingus Radiomolds, they will supplement their diet with other mold-like organisms and detritus is their main food source becomes scarce for one reason or another. It also has a low metabolism, allowing it to go for long periods would any food being consumed if left no choice.

When it comes to breeding, the Radiofeeder 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 Radiofeeder Scrimpes. This occurs will all four tails on each individual, with the two Radiofeeder Scrimpes eventually growing back the four tails.
