Humanity has discovered entire worlds filled with creatures that would question their understanding of biology, but one creature, if it can be called, has brought up many many questions.
Appearance and behavior
The amoeba sea is a massive colony of amoeba Like organisms that stretch across nearly 75% of its planets surface, which is why it’s called a amoeba sea. The surface is solid enough to walk on, but isn’t solid enough for heavy objects, or prolonged standing. the amoeba sea is purple in color and underneath it, one could see either slow moving or completely immobile dimly lit lights which are thought to be some form of bioluminescence. The sea seems to slowly pulsate, which scientists think is a result of the air, but there isn’t any proof to back it up.
When being walked on, the researchers noted that the surface starts to become a lot more more liquid like, and in one instance, a scientist had “fallen” through the surface, and was presumed to be dead. This suggests that the amoeba sea will weaken is surface, causing any living organism to fall through and presumably be digested. When a drone had been sent to go under the amoeba sea, it found thousands upon thousand of preserved yet dead bodies and small cave systems filled with the amoeba like organism, which suggests that either the organism is actively yet slowly corroding rock in search for food, or has grown and replaced an entire sea.
Recently, it has been seen that the local wildlife are safely capable of eating it, which means that the colony of amoeba like organisms might not feel pain, or just don’t react and is filled with enough water and nutrients to keep an animal fed for a few hours or days.
what environmental pressures would lead to a amoeba sea, and what parts of it are and aren’t feasible?
