Cruris crocusism
Ancestor:Descendants:

While the octocrocus in Ovi lake, and the crocusismin the swamps ruled the waters and had very few natural predators only in the Flisch lake did the crocusism fid real challenge and constant attacks by vicious predatory cells. Therefore these conditions created the right environment for an evolutionary change and replacement of the old crocusism with the cruris. The cruris is a photosynthetic cell of the purple and some of the UV light with great maneuvering abilities and fast movement due to its many small legs. It can swim away from enemies and make quick turns keeping the disoriented enemy behind. The cruris reproduces using mitosis of its main central cell. One daughter cell is much larger than the other and is still connected to the other three cells while the second daughter cell is smaller and has no other cells. The smaller daughter cell quite soon in its life uses mitosis to grow the 3 other cells and carry on with its life, a primitive organ growing system one might call it. If one of the cells is eaten the cruris can grow it back as well.
