Revision as of 17:59, July 5, 2015

The branches of the lichen trees are covered in long, sticky strand-like projections, which hang down like Spanish moss. These strands entangle passing flish. Once trapped the flish is hauled up to the branch and digested.

Behavior

The slithersucker is a slime mold, a very primitive form of life which is neither animal nor plant but a large, organised community of microbes.

It lives in the lichen trees of the Northern Forest and is an efficient predator. At certain times of the day, it oozes along a branch and dangles strands of itself below, forming a sticky curtain.

It is able to move from tree to tree by living in a megasquid’s mantle and then erupting out.

Diet

A passing forest flish is easily trapped in the slithersucker’s, slimy net.

Once the flish has been caught, the slithersucker slides off the branch and crashes to the forest floor.

There it secretes a digestive acid which slowly dissolves the helpless forest flish.

Breeding

Nothing.
