The fructocolonius has replaced their ancestor, although they continue to live in the volcanic regions and West Mason Polar Scrub. They have increase their reproductive capabilities in exchange for structural integrity. These bubbles are filled with nutrients stored by the "mother" organism that is passed on. each bubble has a dozen potential offspring. each bubble is also coated with microscopic needles that cause a stinging sensation. They grow extremely quickly, and an organism born at the beginning of the growing season could be a parent by the end. This allows for predators to eat and keep their populations up. Like their ancestors they have a cellular structure that gives it a high compressive strength that becomes harder as more stress is placed upon it.
