|This article is about the Jellyray. You may be looking for the Rabbit Ray, Ghostray or the Crimson Ray.|
The Jellyray possesses a translucent, constantly glowing body. It has a long, thin tail and six, smaller undulating tentacles protruding from each side of its body. The main body glows a violet hue, with bright pink patterns on its back, the rest of the creature glows a light blue colour.
The Jellyray has six circles of various sizes on each side of its torso. These circles could possibly be its eyes, however it is unknown what their purpose is.
Jellyrays aimlessly glide around, dragging their tentacles behind them when doing so and emitting high pitched cries.
They are curious about light, and can usually be seen investigating any nearby light sources.
Data Bank Entry
Shares some evolutionary traits with the rabbit ray, including highly poisonous flesh. This species has adapted to low-light environments with a translucent, luminescent body. This may help to:
Smaller creatures have been seen swimming in the jellyray's wake to take advantage of the light source for their own ends, and the jellyray itself will approach light sources, perhaps mistaking them for others of its own species.
- The sounds of the Jellyray were created from wolf howls
- The Jellyray is closely related to the Ghostray which also has a subspecies, the Crimson Ray, and is related to the Rabbit Ray. This is confirmed by the PDA datalogs, which states that they all share a common ancestor.
- The data bank entry also suggests that Crimson Rays and Ghostrays had a predatory ancestor.
- Jellyrays possess highly poisonous flesh and as such, they have few natural predators - a trait shared with the other ray-species and probably developed by their common ancestor.
- Jellyrays are bottom-dwellers, preferring to glide over the seabed. This suggests they're detritivores - surviving from organic waste that settles down on the seabed. This is further supported by the databank entry of the Spadefish.
