The swampmeans split from its ancestor the swamp beans and coexists with it. Like its ancestor it lives in similar in size colonies and generally resembles its look. This is important for its survival and for its unique secondary food source, blood from its own predators’ mouths. It produces a glue-like protein like the one its ancestor uses to stick organic matter together and make it sink. This protein however is released as a coating on top of the colony itself from small sack like organelles. When predators like the doubletongue come to feed on it the skin on their feeding organs will get attached to the protein and get ripped off creating some bleeding. The whole colony will then feed on this blood. Now older cells that are found deep inside the colony will usually die off and the others will pile on them. These cells are darker and therefore give the semi-transparent colony a darker color.
