Ancestor:Descendants:

The glowing urpoi split from its ancestor, the urpoi. It migrated into deeper waters and hunts in small packs. It has developed biolouminesent spots on its tail in which it flashes to communicate with the pack. It is good at recognizing flashes and hunts mainly other flashing species like the dark swarmer and flashing filtersquid. Sadly this flashing will attract bigger predators. Luckily they are fast swimmers and can get away quickly. Also their shell dorsal fin helps protect them a bit. Its sharp beak can pierce hard shells such as the ones on the deep urchip.
