Physical Description Edit
The Transfigurat Venator (Pronounced/Trans-fig-u-rat/ Ven-at-tor), or transvena (Pronounced/Trans-ven-a), is an omnivorous species which lives on the planet Aquarius (Pronounced/ A-coo-air-re-os), which is a planet made of water and very little air. This species grows to be about 1/2-1 foot in length and 1/2-1 inch in height and they weigh about 1 pound. This species is similar to the Earth flounder in the way it moves, and it is also similar to the Earth jellyfish in the way that it is clear because it is made out of mesoglea, which is a clear, jelly-like substance. The Species reproduces by laying small clear eggs in small crevices once an Aquarian year.
Transfigurat Venator are independent creatures that don't "mate;" instead the reproduction process of the egg being fertilized happens when on transvena swims through a cloud of fertilizing spores released by another. These creatures stay attached to surfaces when feeding. They detach and swim deeper into water at the sight of their predators in order to become harder to see, or they swim into a narrow crevice their predators are too large to enter. When encountering another member of their species, they shock each other to claim their feeding area. These creatures are vary curious creatures and do swim up to you when spotted [Note: Do not scare them if swimming amongst them because they do tend to shock human divers]
The Transfigurat Venator live on the planet called Aquarius which is a planet that has a surface made of completely water. The atmosphere of the planet consists of a dense water vapor making it hard for humans to breathe. The planet'slight source is a nearby hot yellow star, which causes the mass evaporation to occur. The planet is a little bit bigger than earth with a radius of 4,000 miles (Earth has a radius of 3,959 miles). Due the large amount of water the planet has very different plant life from Earth. The planet is less dense than the earth, with a gravity of .81 earth gravity. The planet's life forms have not yet been full discovered but the Transfigurat Venator is somewhere in the lower middle of the food chain while the top is held by the "long legged chartine," which is also an omnivorous species but mainly carnivorous. Aquarius ranges vastly in temperature due to it's relationship to it's sun. The temperature ranges from 90-30 degrees Fahrenheit. The Water is usually calm until the "underwater whirlpools" which occur due to the strange pull of water once a month that comes from the center of the planet, it is still unknown what is in the middle of planet since human technology is not advanced enough to dive down and discovery what lies there. There have been some meteorite crashes which cause under water circular platforms for certain lifeforms to live.
Physical Adaptations Edit
The Transfigurat Venator have existed in their present form for about a million earth years according to scientist. This species has developed many adaptations to the waters of Aquarius. One would be a clear see- through body to better camouflage with the water. Another imprtant adaptation noticed by anyone who has seen it is its ability to expand and retract its tentacles from its body, which go back into its body leaving no trace that they are even there. This creature also has the ability to squeeze through tight spaces or in other words make one part of it's body thinner than the rest allowing it to fit through even the smallest of cracks. One notable trait is that it grows suction cups on the bottom or the surfaces which it lands on to grip the surface so it does not drift away it also makes it self paper thin when the whirlpools occur. The creature's tentacle's also sense the strange shift in gravity to predict when it happens, yet it is still unknown how it does that. It is also very slimy so it can move easier though the cracks and crevices.
Note: When picked up without gloves the creature shocks and swims away.
Behavioral Adaptations Edit
The Transfigurat Venator tends to hunt small fish at night since they are harder to see at night which leaves the small fish unaware of the approach and attack of the tranvena. These creature also attach themselves to herbivores for faster travel and to capture food faster. Sometimes they even attach themselves to predators to hide from them because they are ably to nullify the predator's senses allowing them to be attached without being noticed.
