They are a hive-based species which grows many underwater hives similar to beehives. They tend to prefer water as deep as possible, often taking over caves and the ocean floor.
They resemble eels, however with four limbs resembling flippers, but with opposable spines attatched. They have a tadpole-like fin on both their back and underbelly. On their back, they have two rows of spines used to detect faint smells and vibrations.
Their heads are rounded and mostly covered in a semi-transparent visor hiding their eyes. They have clear needle-like teeth. Their mouth has no lips; the teeth are simply built onto the surface.
