A PRIMEVAL EEL

One of the mutated marine creatures that made an appearance in The Kaligen Experiment is a species of foot-long eel-like fish. They are like lampreys in that they are jawless and have eel-like bodies. Their heads are rounder and their eyes are larger. This makes them similar to the prehistoric conodonts, which lived from the Cambrian Period to the Jurassic Period. However, my creature has smaller teeth than a conodont and its tail fins are larger and more eel-like. Instead of being predators or parasites, my creature is a bottom feeder that feeds on decaying organic matter on the sea floor.
