The kingskwid has split from its ancestor. The kingskwid is almost exactly like its ancestor, aside from their getting slightly larger, and a small mutation dropping their number of tentacles to four. The only major difference is their reproduction method. Four times every year the females will lay their eggs directly into the water, where they will catch on the male's skin, which is now coated in a sticky slime. These tiny eggs will be absorbed directly into the porous skin of the male, where they will be fertilized. Weeks later, the little baby kingskwids will pop out, similar to a seahorse, and live a life of their own. These babies are so tiny that instead of filter feeding, they actually have to hunt down their prey. When they get larger they will use the same feeding method as their parents.
