The detriglobe split from it's ancestor and moved to deeper waters. There, they were no longer able to use photosynthesis, instead they further developed their detritus abilities. They know drift in the water or sit on the seabed, absorbing microscopic particles of marine "snow" through pores along it's structure. If they land on the ground, they will cake themselves their using an enzyme developed from modified antifreeze cells. They will stay there until all the snow is eaten, in about 2–4 days, then release and float up.
