(stolidus subsido piscis piscis)
Probably the dumbest fish ever to have inhabited the ocean. The locals of the fiji islands called the Furblegutter "stupid sinking fish" in
their native language. Its lifecycle was extremely short. Once the male fish hit maturity they started collecting pearls to impress the
females of the species.
With its long and versatile tongue it attached the pearls to its forehead. In its blind collecting rage the Furblegutter never stopped to
consider the weight the pearls added to its forehead, making it an unstable swimmer. Most mature males died within a few weeks by
simply sinking to the bottom of the ocean because of the heavy load of the pearls. Since females of the species tended to mate with
the most heavely loaded males, the stupid habit of the sinking pearl finders was actually reinforced through reproduction.
Soon the newer generation fish began collecting pearls before they reached maturity. It is widely accepted among marine biologists
that the Furblegutter became extinct really, really fast.

it's HOT out there, it's SUMMER...and it's time to present the most beautiful Pearl Finders living out there somewhere...
And please STAY AWAY from any utilities the creatures are using...define a species which fits to the topic Pearl Finder...no chars and no mutated humans and no pink ponies in transparent swimsuits...
thanx to Sofia Alexandra for the topic!

These creatures sift and search the ocean[shallows] floor for oysters, rubbing thier heads into the sand and sending off sounds that bounce back like sonar,helping them detect things in the sands.Naturally, thier heads would become scarred and scratced up,finding things that sting and bite.[sting rays and angelfish]With a shark-like appearance, false eyes on their heads,and 'fake spines' that are actually jelly filled appendages on thier bodies, they make themselves seem more threatening than they really are.
well, i'll try, i don't know if my idea is valid, but...
this is my 1st sketch!
some kind of hemit-crab-like, it find pearls and it sticks on it's shell using its' own saliva, and make an impression with females.

You're just now noticing? I joined this site, like, WEEKS ago!Originally Posted by Fozzybar
And I don't appreciate the smiley descrimination going on around here. I saw you giving bluefooted those happy, grinning smilies while I just get a tongue sticky-outy smiley and a perv smiley. What up with that?
Since I suggested the topic I guess I'll have to get something done this time... Uh, ideas, where art thou?
(And by the way there's nothing wrong with pink ponies, see my pics in the "Just toys" thread in the Photography section for proof. It's when you put clothes on them that they turn eville and think they're better than other animals, just like the pigs in the Animal Farm.)
I am totally awesome and one day I'll be able to prove it.
2 legs baaaaaaaad....4 legs goooooooood...
oh i am very sorry...i forgot these as well...

But moai none of those are happy apart from mayby the devil but thats because of the guy hammering his head into the brick wall.
m o я p h o and me have a similar idea, about putting the pearls on the body.
The Pearl Finders are domesticated creatures that have been used by the Tritonia, Fish-men and women for ages. A basic gatherer creature, they are used for locating and collecting pearls, which are then used in an variety of objects by the Tritonia, including hand held objects, clothes, and architecture. The pearls are also sold to the other factions, especially the land dwellers. Pearl Finders can also be purchased by land dwellers, owning one is sign of prestige, and can bring even quicker fortune. The Finders have modified middle fingers which are flat, they use these to open up oysters and clams found on the shore as well as underwater. On their back are holes for carrying the pearls, being able to carry 7 on each side. Additionally, an extra pearl can be carried in each hand, as well as the tail, for a total of 17 pearls on full cargo.
EDIT: image update.
