The Charybdis Sea, the largest body of water on Tregama, was named for these animals. Although they are called Charybdis fish, the species in this picture is only about 40-50 cm long. This is a small species, though. It is called the pigmy torpem. The largest whirlpool feeding species are up to 2 m in length. They are all filter feeders and surface feeders, using a whirlpool to suck in small water striding animals and plankton. Almost all species related to this have 6 valves, which allows them to swim more smoothly than most animals that use valves to swim.
