Exquisite Evolution

Endless_SerpentsEndless_Serpents Registered User regular
Here is a creature.

9ikiskadnkzs.jpeg

It must evolve to survive the harsh and ever changing conditions of its environment.

In time its descendants will branch off into different species, predators and prey, ones that swim, fly, burrow… but right now it’s a little blob.

You can tell me what you want to see it become next, or take it upon yourself to evolve it down your own path. Anyone can add a new feature, evolving your design further and further away from your intentions. Try to be incremental with your evolutions.

After a few pages I’ll make a big family tree, so we can look at where we started and what we end up with.

    And so, after just two generations the creature has become an aquatic predator, in a twist of fate, its primary food source is the other gilled blobs.

    One might question the advantage of a single hoof, yet clearly this blob has found a niche within the rock pools the blobs call home.

    I say that little guy needs a racing stripe from his brow to his behind.

    I feel that would be pretty sharp.

    Ah yes, now emerges a hoof-blob with superiority of vision, allowing it to hunt and avoid predation with increased efficiency.

    Two of the hoof-blobs begin to show what may be mating markings, or warnings of their poisonous nature. They are competing, but related species.

    While this hoof-blob at first appears similar to its ancestors, it produces milk for its young. The first signs of care for its own kind, and desire to give its young the best possible start in life.

    A change in temperatures within its environment has led to a fascinating evolution for the milk producing hoof-blobs.

    As temperatures continue to cool, further separation has occurred, bringing forth the first haired hoof-blobs. One opts for a light, airy type of hair, while the other has a slick, hardened mass of hair used to defend itself.

    Meanwhile, the relative dominance of the far seeing hoof-blobs have allowed them to expend more energy on attracting mates.

    Uh oh, some of the blobs have begun to shed their hoof for a tail. They must be adapting to become more aquatic and less terestrial!

    The slickback, as they are now known, has innovated to an unprecedented degree. It’s streamlined hair allowed it to move through the water like greased lightning, and now with the aid of many fins, it has manoeuvrability like no other.

    Their hoof softening and unfurled, these tailed blobs are unlike any other. Though fast, they require constant food to survive, and they themselves a veritable feast.

    As the temperature settles, life, for now, has found an equilibrium, though the slickbacks have diversified into two ‘gangs’ which populate the east and west respectively.

    Probably isn't an apex predator, so it needs horns or spines to ward off even larger predators.

    Within a generation one of the ‘gangs’ caused the extinction of the other by utilising their horns made from hardened hair.

    Also some of them get a single horn out and up from between their eyes. But instead of like a regular horn it is like a organic trumpet they use to play ska music.

    Fragile and high in proteins, the tailed blobs must use their exposed brain to outsmart their predators.

    Relatively absent from the stage of life, these blobs have returned with renewed vigour. Their ability to communicate is unparalleled.

    Endless_SerpentsEndless_Serpents Registered User regular
    Communication lead to both an ability to unite the species, and a requirement to defend it.

    The new horned species is already developing a rudimentary chitinous exoskeleton, perhaps in response to the gore horn the other species developed.
