The bubblepede zapper is the next generation of the bubblepede-eatter. Like its ancestor, it has camouflaged its body with purple stripes and can no longer produce photosynthesis. It eats mostly bubblepedes, which eat the sea bubbleweed, but has been known to eat other aquatic creatures it can shock. Its three-pronged head shocks prey like a cattle prod, thus paralyzing them for eating. It can also defend against predators with the prongs. It has also streamlined into more of a "fish" shape, which allows it to escape from predators better. It is about the size of a sea otter.
