planet fauna

Post  Avanti on Mon Feb 10, 2014 5:38 pm

the atmosphere have a lot of floating animals which looks like big bags or manets. they are moving with the winds and have tentacles with which they gather micro-organisms and devour them. they are also hunted by other animals. there is also a version of these invertebrate animals who walk on seven legs through the mushroom woods, using trunks which look like dicks to bore through the soft, fungy soil to suck nutrition. they can become very big. they have no eyes but orient through scent and sonar.

like bats.

Good idea to have separate topics.

if the planet has a big oxygen content, its going to have giant bugs. I am saying it has giant preying mantis, spiders, scorpions and dragonflies.

Dragonflies that could pick up a man.

does that negate my first idea? planets don't fucking have just one type of species.

Calm down,

i am reiterating because i originally put this idea in the other thread.

The planet has seabound animals that are half mammal, half fish. fish-mammal creatures with both gills, a uterus and mammary glands. In rather the same way that a duck billed platypus is a mammal yet lays eggs.

If we want to get technical the planet is unlikely to have anything that we know. Eukaryotes as we know them today evolved from symbiosis of two different cells (chloroplasts and mitochondria were originally species of their own which were engulfed in the cells that eventually became eukaryotes). It's highly unlikely this event would be replicated in the same way under drastically different conditions.

------

The planet has a slew of prokaryotic microbial life forms that attack the great fungal forests upon a cellular level. These microbes are most often found in a parasitic relationship with the fungi, invading their stalks and draining nutrients that the fungi depend on for survival.

One particular mammalian sea creature is a hairy eel with gills, that can measure up to 8 metres long. It can swim up freshwater streams and has a sticky tongue for catching giant dragonflies that venture too near the water surface.

true but without using contemporary earth examples it is difficult to give approximate descriptions.

there are crystallid bacteria formations building up semi-transparent rock-like structures standing over the water surface. they are so many that there sometimes are mazes of them. they exist in multiple colors and grow according to forms. some of them also exist on land and are predatory scavengers, attacking dead organisms and encasing them in crystal, eating them and then leaving broken statues behind of dead organisms, forever encased in crystal.

i call them nyoozozophagia.

some animals however are symbiotes of them, using them as a way to grow and shed protective shells or strengthen their claws and mandibles.

some of these microbes are however necessary for the fungi to be able to live. also, they build up most of the podzoles.
