Ancestor:Descendants:

Certain maelstrom gharks slowly migrated into the Sunlight Zone of the Jujubee Ocean and split into a new species, the transport ghark. The species gets its name from the symbiotic relationship it quickly established with passenger foi. Passenger fois acid is slightly genetically different from the other fois' acid and this makes the transport ghark and a few other creatures not affected by it. Instead it can be used as an adhesive to stick on to these certain creatures for transport.

The symbiotic relationship between the ghark and the foi is confusing, but both of them benefit greatly from it. The ghark and foi stay together basically for life. The ghark leads the foi to food and the foi eats part of it, then the foi spews gastric acid on it, making it digestible for the ghark.

Along with the symbiotic relationship with the foi, the ghark are now, unlike their relatives, very social creatures. They scavenge in groups and raise their young with care. They also have more vivid colors for attracting mates. During courtship, the male will try to attract a mate by swimming around in complex fashions, and if a female is interested, she will join in the dance.The transport ghark have completely lost their dorsal fin, as it no longer served any purpose.
