Flukae

Flukae species (similar to Planae ones) use their tail to swim forward and flippers to adjust direction, but are better adapted to endurance swimming with stiffened paddles or flukes on the end of their muscular tails. This allows them to undertake their great marine migrations, some species traveling from coast to coast every year.  They are opportunistic feeders, consuming flora and fauna alike as each is encountered.  Flukae nymphs, however, do not immediately begin their Family’s nomadic lifestyle, remaining in the general area in which they hatch, until they grow large enough to join a large pod of adults when they return.
