Convergent Evolution by DemonML Convergent Evolution by DemonML
some unknown species that is the result of convergent evolution between the Scyphozoa and Octopus species


(jellyfish and octopus)

I don't even...
All I know is that it draws food in through the "neck-mouth" which has the ability to quadruple its diameter for consumption of larger prey and the the "tentacles" pick up chemical and electrical signatures in the water which allows this creature to locate and hunt prey.

I did this in Biology class when we were learning about convergent and divergent evolution...

Creature (yet to be named) (c) :icondemonml: me

Very awesome, I love how you added in the small tentacles as well as big ones. It's a great design, you should keep him as a character!
