To begin with, this biome is marine and is somewhat on a cliff of the continental slope. Although sadly they do not wear marine outfits, they do have certain features that help them adapt to their surroundings. To begin with, their eyes can be as big as 2 feet by 1 feet. This is a feature that helps them capture as most light as possible. Although the photograph in the slide before may be a bit misleading, at the point 3,280 feet under water is the point when light cannot penetrate through water. Another feature you can find is the tails. The tails are used for both defense and offense, but perhaps it is used more frequently to move around in the water. Lastly, they have “noses” although they really use gills below their fats to breathe, their long nose help keep them in balance as well as detect any moving objects. In their biome, there usually isn’t much creatures at all. Living between the 656-3,280 feet, they are considered to live in the thermo cline-twilight zone. They are tertiary consumers (nothing eats bloobs) and they usually rely on krill, non-migrating fish, jellyfish, and their favorite meal, baby giant squid. Although it may seem like there is hardly any life here, huge creatures like the bloobs can exist here.
***Ceftiver (father) has been reported to be 30 feet head to tail, and 10 feet side to side.
Pedigree is a chart that shows a certain trait being passed down from a generation to another generation. In our case, we begin with the parents of Ceftiver (father). Since we have chosen the trait with tails (amount) we must first know the genetic makeup of Ceftiver. His genetic makeup for tail is ll (homozygous recessive). Although his parents could’ve been entirely been homozygous one tail or heterozygous many tails, his father was a homozygous one tail and his mother was a carrier. This means that Ceftiver had a 50% chance of receiving one tail.
If we go on to the mother’s side, we can see that her parents are similar to Ceftiver’s parents, but her father is homozygous many tails. This way, she had a 0% chance of receiving one tail, and 50% chance of being a carrier. When Ceftiver and Jikisha (mom) had children, they had the same cross as Ceftiver’s parents- homozygous one tail and a heterozygous many tails. This cross gave an outcome of 50% many tails and 50% one tail, but at the end, 2/3 of the kids had one long tail.
Punnett squares are crosses between the father and mother in order to see all the possible outcomes of an offspring. If we look at our Punnett squares, we start with the bloobs’ skin color. In this instance, we can see that when you cross Bb and bb, you get a 50% chance of each phenotype. Just like the crosses told us, half of the offsprings had red coat, and the other half had the blue coat. However, there’s something to think about here. Although blue skin is dominant, since we crossed more recessive than dominant, there is a fair chance of getting half of each phenotype. When we speak of gender, there is always 50% chance that an offspring will be male or female. The most wide variety of outcomes shown here is the crosses between Ss and Ss. There are three possible genotypes and two different types of phenotypes. It could be 25% SS, 50% Ss, and 25% ss, or 75% square eyes and 25% round eyes. As you can see in the next two Punnett squares, all the possible outcomes are the same, so all of the offspring will have the same genotype and phenotype.
Founded under the 3,280 feet under water in the Atlantic Ocean, it has a glowing red skin. He is the father of the Palla family. It seems to be a male according to it’s genetic makeup. It has square eyes that is 2 feet by 1 feet, and a huge pink oval nose. It has pointed teeth with the longest fang being 4 feet long, and has a long tail that seems to be used for offense rather than defense. Its huge eyes allow it to see well under the water, and has “nose” that seems to be used as a defense rather than it being part of the respiratory system.Ceftiver Palla
Founded under the 3,280 feet under water in the Atlantic Ocean, it has a translucent blue skin, and it appears to be a female. She is the mother of the Palla family. Like her husband, Ceftiver, she has square eyes and an oval nose. However, she seems to be the only female and a bloob that has square teeth in her family. Instead of having one huge tail, she has many shorter tails shaped as arrows in order to protect herself from predators.Jikisha Palla
Founded under the 3,280 feet under water in the Atlantic Ocean, it has a translucent red skin, and seems to be a male. Although very much like his father, he is different in which that he has many tails rather than one big tail. Being the oldest of all the children, he lacks physical strength (supposedly explains why he has many tails), but he is the most intelligent one.Flickup Palla
Founded under the 3,280 feet under water in the Atlantic Ocean, it has a translucent red skin, and seems to be a male. This second son of the Palla family has the exact same phenotypes as the father, although his genotypes differ in square eyes and pointed teeth. That makes sense because since square eyes and pointed teeth are dominant alleles, homozygous and heterozygous square eyes and pointed teeth will always turn out to be like that.Jitwi Palla
Founded under the 3,280feet under water in the Atlantic Ocean, it has a translucent blue skin, and seems to be a male. He is the third son of the Palla family, and has the exact same genotypes as his brother Jitwi except that of is skin color. To begin with, He had a 50% of getting a blue or red skin. On the Punnett square, the cross is between Bb and bb, and the outcomes are half of each phenotypes as well as genotypes.Ozikoroo Palla
Founded under the 3,280 feet under water in the Atlantic Ocean, it has a translucent blue skin, and seems to be a male. He was born with a very rare bloob disorder called the “Menahaiseindowel Disorder” (Meh.na.hi.zen.da.wool). This rare disorder occurs when an extra Y chromosome is copied rather than there being a nondisjunction of a X chromosome. The side effects are a bulkier body, smaller facial organs, extra unwanted fangs, a larger tail, and a mental disorder in which it controls the body to act violent. Although there is no cure for this disorder, it usually calms itself down when the dad is present. Bloobs with this disorder usually die because of rage and suicide (or events that ultimately kills them even if it’s an accident).
Founded under the 3,280 feet under water in the Atlantic Ocean, it has a translucent blue skin, and seems to be a male. He is the fourth son of the Palla family, and has the EXACT same GENOTYPES with Ozikoroo, EXCEPT that he is a heterozygous square eyes. In that sense, Ozikoroo had gotten the more unlikely genotype. When you cross Ss and Ss, you get a 50% chance of Ss, but a 25% chance of SS.Fivurn Palla
Founded under the 3,280feet under water in the Atlantic Ocean, it has a translucent red skin, and seems to be a male. He is the youngest in the Palla family, and has one extraordinary feature. If you look at his eyes, you will notice that his eyes are round. What people may think is that since everyone else in the family has square eyes, he is not normal. However, there is proof that he didn’t get these eyes on accident. If you cross a heterozygous square eyes and another heterozygous square eyes, you get an outcome of 25% homozygous square, 50% heterozygous square, and a 25% homozygous round. Therefore, although he had received that hard 25% homozygous recessive trait, it proves that this wasn’t any weird kind of a mutation.
