Ancestor:Descendants:

The surfacestrum split from its ancestor, the suction crastrum and was spread throughout the Jujubee Ocean and coasts carried by its main host, the brute snark. As few of its ancestors got stuck to other things like fauna and stones some chose the brute snarks as hosts and were carried away to the deep ocean. There they formed a new bio-society and through genetic diversity and mutation a new species was formed. These can grow twice the size of their ancestor and usually live in huge groups, mainly to the skin of snraks. It attaches to these fauna using the same mechanism its ancestor used, lots of small suction circles that by expanding and shrinking grip the surface of the skin. They lost the sensitivity to crystals and instead now release enzymes that detect whether the thing they are attached to is organic or not, with greater sensitivity to the snark family. They usually cover up to 25% of their hosts. They still in times of trouble escape in a massive cloud, mainly when their host is going to be eaten or is in danger. They could be found all around Jujubee ocean and are very common. They are seen as great green spots from far away but closely they are in fact star shaped having 7-12 arms.
