adaptations: able to eat non swamp plants
diet: needlebridge needles & leaves, cypress terminator isopods, bark isopods.
description: a species of hoatzin that stopped only eating rotten swamp plants because of a lack of swamps and instead eats the needles and leaves of the needlebridge trees as well as insects that eat the trees to increase stomach cellulase
habitat: needlebridge systems.
adaptations: crest is a bit wobblier in some spots, crest is more flexible in those spots,
diet: leaves, twigs, and needlebridge roots
description: a species of parasaurolophus that has a slightly wobbly crest and some muscles in it to keep it from throwing off their center of mass with just a gust of wind
habitat: bridge islands
adaptations: thicker tail, faster tail, longer tail, clawed legs, better vision.
description: a species of vinegaroon that has a tail with fast-twitch muscles in it’s tail to move it fast enough to cause pain and leave red marks on unguarded skin as well as small claws on each leg to stay on the ground and better vision to sense distant targets better
habitat: tree bridge island systems
adaptations: crest is even more flexible in the bendy spots, bones in those spots are more cartilaginous, harder beak, teeth are wider and more durable, more complex crest muscles.
diet: leaves, twigs, needlebridge roots, stickbridge roots
description: a species of wobblecrest that has a more flexible less breakable crest than it’s predecessors and muscles that allow it to keep the crest in the right position to prevent a misplaced center of mass as well as use it as the most rudimentary of manipulators
habitat: needlebridge/stickbridge systems
ancestor: sea grass
name: macrocellular sea grass
mutations: gene necessary for cell division corrupted resulting one cell connected by holes in the cell walls, photoplastic viropods as organelles that move shit between cells, the viropods have started not dividing their cells due to them being so small, mitochondria DNA is now completely backed up in nucleus,
diet: the SUN, water, sediment
description: a unicellular macroscopic species of sea grass that has a species of photoplastic viropods with only one cell per limb/organ as organelles as well as the necessary DNA to make a fully operational mitochondrion backed up in the nuclei because of a viropod envelope getting a mitochondrial plasmid and infecting an egg cell at just the right angle for the DNA to get incorporated into the nucleus. the viropods are now only 15-23 cells to decrease osmoregulation costs and increase space for non membrane-bound organelles and make space for more intracellular processes as well as move easier and move shit easier as their purpose is to move organelles that have their own DNA that the nuclei don’t have
habitat: same as regular sea grass
