The Lesser Butterfly

This bizarre organism floats through the nanosphere on delicate ‘wings’. With these vascular structures X. fur, known as the lesser butterfly, both eats and breathes.

The reproductive method of X. fur is ingenious and unique. It captures and ingests the globules of other organisms, then slowly converts the foreign genetic material to match its own. Through a process of forced and controlled mutation, the globule becomes a viable egg of the butterfly. Once conversion is complete, the egg, now an entirely different species than before, is ejected to develop on its new course.
