The buoygea have split from their ancestors, the bubble droopgea, and continue to exist within the Jujubee Polar Sea. They have adapted to survive longer out on the ocean, and to do this they have grown many more tentacles than their ancestor. For the most part these are used simply to increase surface area for photosynthesis. However, six tentacles have grown along the dorsal surface of the air-chamber, which have grown small flaps between them to operate as very primitive sails. This allows the buoygea to slowly drift along the air currents. Should they not obtain enough nutrients however to continue their existence much longer, they will enter a state of hibernation, where they require significantly less nutrients to survive, but produce less energy via photosynthesis. They will then leave this hibernation once more nutrients are available. The extra length is in fact due to the dorsal sail and lengthened lower tentacles.
