God damn, this board shouldn't be dead.

>A salp is a barrel-shaped, planktonic tunicate.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunicate

These look fucking alien; they look like a precursor to larger organisms. Holy shit.

Board owner here, I plan to attempt bring life back to this board, but will have more time in a few weeks hopefully and during this winter. Check back occasionally

Yeah, I think I read that salps might be a precursor to vertebrates. I didn't know about them until recently. I was reading about krill, and I guess they are declining in some parts of the ocean, and when they decline salps appear more frequently. Fucking crazy looking things!

This article was interesting (it's in entertaining, light science style)

It seems like there are a lot of different types of tunicates

BO again

I never realized there was already a more active board relating to animals.

>>>/an/

I recommend using that board. I'll hold onto this board just to learn about mod features and might still try to keep this place active in the event that /an/ sucks, but it looks pretty decent.
