Ancestor:Descendants:

The sea finworm split from the fin worm. It directly competes with its relative, the Jet Worm, but rather than speed it has adapted camouflage. Like its competition the bubblepede, it blends in with the purple sea bubbleweed. The tail has become larger and more powerful, and it moves it side to side like a fish. The back eyes have also gotten bigger to look out for predators. Many fins move in a wave motion when swimming and can actually swim quite fast, but not as fast as the jet worm. Unlike its relative it lays its eggs in the sea in the sea bubbleweed. Unlike beakworms it must come up to the surface for air.
