To remain buoyant, their flesh is a primarily gelatinous mass with a density slightly less than water, displaying extraordinary adaptations to the arboreal browsing lifestyle. Their immensely long appendages make them very mobile, searching the bottom for soft stationary meals that cannot escape the regenerative slime, which they extrude from some 100 glands or invaginations. The males are often dwarfs, which remain attached to a single female for life moving around as a single body. Gradually their tissues dissolve into hers and eventually disappear completely. This highly unusual set of physical traits completes an all-seeing search engine in an otherwise unexplored area of Deepnet.
