Morsus turpis is a nasty cell. It is covered with hollow needle like objects. These needles can pierce any cell, and when they do, they eject a enzyme that can liquefy other cells. After the cells are liquefied they will get sucked into Morsus turpis. This cell can affect single-celled organisms as well as multi-celled organisms. Morsus turpis mostly clean up dead organisms floating in the sea or lying on the beach, but sometimes living creatures get affected by them and will start to get large wounds that will eventually kill them.
