Skippers by Demmmmy Skippers by Demmmmy
A hopping plant on Fentil.

Common enough to be seen as the 'rodents' of the plant kingdom, skippers are the basis for many food chains and their carrion-scavenging lifestyle ensures a complete cycling of nutrients.

The root has a tube running through it, the opening at the end sucks up water and the root cap acts like teeth to pick off flesh and dead plant.

As stated on the sheet, on Fentil, ';predators' are not exclusively carnivores, as some herbivores have evolved to catch mobile plant prey, which creates some interesting food webs.

Hopping plants, he he! A funny AND a good alien design. Maybe plants on other planets are mobile.

These spreadsheets are really working for me ... they look like pages from a book. I love the larger predator chasing the skippers :)

Thanks. I quite enjoy doing these. I think I read too many biology textbooks in school as a child and the layouts and diagrams just rubbed off on me.
What can I say, I'm quite the geek.

This also begs the question of 'what is a plant?'

It does, and it's a good question to ask.
A few of Fentil's marine food chains are supported by bacterial 'trees' that feed on hydrothermal vents, removing plants as the ';producers' all together.
