Let's play an evolution game set in the primordial oceans, shall we?
The rules are simple:
1) evolve a creature by modifying their picture and giving a plausible reason.
2) only a single modification/upgrade may be made per 'update'.
3) you can choose different species to upgrade.
4) I'll be plopping some events which you can adapt your creatures to, and decide if any updates are invalid.

One of the creatures: the Sluck. It is a slow-moving bottom-dweller which eats primitive moss and detritus.

Due to their slow natures. Slucks are easily eaten by animals. Through due to the nature of being eaten not all of the animal is always taken.

The Worem's enhanced locomotive capabilities allow it to take a more active role in the food chain. Their legs develop further, allowing them tremendous speed on the ocean floor, but slightly diminished swimming capability. Its sticky resin is now produced by internal glands in its mouth, and fluorescent lights at the ends of its reoriented scoops serve to attract larger prey.

In addition, they develop a stinger on their previously unprotected back end; though it has yet to develop poison for it, this is a deterrent for predators.

The Worem is beginning to develop eyes.

The poisonous fus, in their dwindling numbers, begin to prey upon all forms of life, including the colony fus.

They develop tendril-like limbs to assist them. They use these limbs to grasp onto their prey, and to anchor themselves when they rest.

many colonyfus get tangled in thick algae clouds and die off. Half survive, and a quarter of them develop a acid dispersing orifice near their antennae. The acid burns through algae on contact, but doesnt harm worems or slucks. The Fus are however not totally immune, and freefus are irritated by it. Colony fus, however, get extremely fucked over by it, where it burns their membrane off (which regrows later), and messes up their antennae and echolocation for awhile.

The Flus' air sacs seperated into two lobes, each increasing in size on the inside of the body. This allowed for significant longer sustained floating, as well as a decreased need to return to water.

The increased space in between the air sacs allowed the Flus' mandibles to grow in size, and is now used more aggressively.

The poison glands of old adapted into a thing coating of the poison along the Flus' body. This poison is alkaline in nature, and neutralizes the Blade Worem's acid. Though it is now immune to the Blade Worem's acid, the Flus' soft yet rubbery hide is not a very good defense against the Blade Worem's blades and teeth. This, combined with their slow floating speed, makes the Flus a major prey for the Blade Worem.

((>>18434333 went so wrong, but is dead now. i leave this here as a bit of atmosphere, nothing more.)) A meteorite strikes into the ocean, sinking to the deepest parts of the trench. It is clear and crystalline in nature. Inside is a creature from another world...or perhaps moon. It appears long dead, never to move again...just a cautionary tale of evolution gone horribly wrong.

Liked the colour changes :D

Due to lack of predators and high population the AirBorne Slucks brain is developing at an increased rate they have begun to organize their communities and form a primitive social system.

Their bodies have become hardened shells to protect from the few predators able to reach them in their high altitude environments. The reach of their harpoons has increased as well, allowing them to stab prey in the ocean and on land without descending from their homes

Nice. That will work against the Fus but good luck shooting into the upper atmosphere to get my Slucks

The AirBorne Slucks social structure develops more. They begin to work in groups to remove threats and deal with dangerous predators. Their brains are still expanding and growing, theirs bodies have hardened even more becoming almost unpierceable (being made out of Carbon ex. diamond, carbon fibres)

Well, I wouldn't say it's made of diamonds, but just really tough and striated. Basically, they will need a long time to kill.

Also, feel free to develop the land dwellers now! A new kind of plant has evolved, which resemble interconnected bushes. These plant types can grow further inland, and they can trap rainwater in leaf-cups.

(playing a little catch-up with the foldworms; this is three posts' worth of evo)

As the food chain moves away from the sea bed and toward the beach, the foldworms return to their roots. Losing their plated exoskeleton in favor of a sleeker, faster body, their undersides now sport color to blend in from underneath. Meanwhile, the vestigial filter scoops now serve a new purpose- a cluster of sensitive cells at their tips relays information to its tiny brain along with the row of eyespots along its back.

A new row of filter-slits along each side has developed next to the mouth-hole to pull in more food.

guess it wouldn't be too fair if they could kill EVERYTHING. But as it stands they can still almost everything in here except FoldWorems because they're still bottom dwellers.

I am now monitoring this thread. Also for those who are moving towards sentience. It's pressures such as predation and competition that seem to spur intelligence. Any species we have on Earth that shows signs of cognitive ability is often a predator or some form of scavenger that has lots of active competition for food.

The paddleworem's returning trips to the shores allow it to slowly process oxygen from the air through its moist skin. In response its hide begins to also take on tougher qualities as it traverses the prehistoric marshes and swamps bridging the pseudo-amphibian's way into terrestrial territories. Its constant pursuit by advancing air and landborne predators force it to sometimes take to the depths of muddy banks. Its lack of sodium deters its bio-electric abilities, but it retains its heightened senses, staying one step ahead of predators and prey as groups of frowgworems make harmonious chirps and clicks during breeding season.

A small group of Fus have grown red, eye-like spots, making them look more menacing to their prey. As a result, they are slightly larger than their un-spotted cousins, but move slower as a result.

Introducing the Dragon Sluck

Evolving from the AirBorne Sluck it has lost most of its harpoons but grown in size, it also no longer secretes its toxic enzyme, instead the enzyme has become increasingly toxic and volatile, the increase in size and introduction of enzyme excreting glands has caused brain size to decrease and their reproductive cycle has changed to that of laying eggs removing the need for the spore sac harpoon, it is shrinking becoming vestigial

The paddleworem begins to grossly deviate from its annelid ancestors. A cartilaginous structure begins the first steps into developing a genuine skeleton. Fully formed toes and red muscles fueled by an early single lung, (despite their dependance on absorbing oxygen through their skin still) develop as the paddlefrowg scuttles onto land into further inland water sources, spreading its influence far and wide. Airborne slucks compete with these landbound creatures and their wily maneuverability, maintaining a niche as one of the first genuine terrestrials, feeding on their woremy ancestors with controlled electric jolts from their roughly untouched forelimbs.

The surface shield worm develops primitive lungs to help itself survive longer on out of water and get dem tasty greens. As a result it becomes a bit larger.
