Charybdis Fish



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.

How do they create the whirlpool. I had a couple different creatures like this.
