Ancestor:Descendants:

The cryoswarmer replaced its ancestor, the krakow swarmer in the South Polar Coast. There it gained some more blubber to keep it warm and an improved anti-freeze chemical in its blood to keep it from freezing even in the coldest months. It has more white colorings to blend in with the ice, however this meant reduced photosynthesis. This means it has to feed more. Its fins and tail-tentacles have become more streamline for better swimming. This is not only great for filter-feeding but for escaping predators as well.
