>The blood of an Ork has a chlorophyll high content, with trace elements of carbon and copper. This would account for the green colour of the blood and shows that photosynthesis is an important part of the Ork structure.

>Scientists have identified a sea slug able to synthesize chlorophyll like a plant.

>The animal enjoys genes that allow it to be the first animal identified showing plant features. Those genes help the green sea slug make chlorophyll.

Once again, GW workshop astounds me with how little information it can retain about biology. Now to go to an actual news story!

orks are silicon based life, carbon only in trace amounts needed for photosynthesis

Wrong, they are WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHHHH based life.

Yeah nah, that's full of shit.

>his would account for the green colour of the blood

It's like the fag-tards who write the wiki don't do their proper research...

Ork blood is red. GW and Andy Chambers confirmed that. Their blood still uses iron to move oxygen, and besides that red stands out better against the Green skin.

>>17975954
That's actually true, well sorta. It consumes plants and incoporates their genes into it as well as taking in their chloroplasts

>> No.17976002

>>17975988

Sure, got it.

But photosynthesis is not the only features of plants, and the slug is not the only animal to share such features.

>> No.17976011

>>17976002

To clarify, the slug is not the only animal to share plant features, though it may be the only one to share photosynthetic features.

>the slug is not the only animal to share such features

Orks aren't real

>>17975965
"red stands out better on green skin" is the reason the blood is red. It used to be green

>> No.17976037

>>17976002
actually, It is. Tell me of any other animal that produces its own food?

You can't at least not complex life. That's what makes this so weird. Its like finding a fungi that does the same thing. It just shouldn't be able to do that. But, it does.

It's dark purple. It does leave red splotches though, pretty much like wine.
