Ascension has its share of unique plant and animal species in addition to the sapient races. This is a partial list of ones that exist in the roleplay. This page is IN PROGRESS, so some of the information is not finished and will be updated shortly!
GREEN SEA MONSTER (Magnaviridis pelagius)
Probably one of the most well known species around Ascension, the green sea monster can be seen singly or in small pods. The most famous individual of this species is Steve, who claims the Ascension Bay as his territory. His son Boomshakalaka is currently being cared for by the occult shop staff until he is old enough to be returned to the open waters.
Lifespan of the green sea monsters is not known, though Steve is theorized to be several thousand years old and fossil records show they existed almost unchanged during the Cretaceous period. It is presumed that it takes many hundreds of years for the monsters to mature. They are omnivorous, though with a heavy carnivore preference which is even more prominent at a young age. Boomshakalaka is known to throw any non-meat items out of his tank if the lid is not closed quickly enough. Their dentition is obviously evolved for their preferred diet, consisting of shark-like rows of razor sharp teeth. They are non-discriminatory with the types of people they eat, not passing up the opportunity if they are hungry and someone happens by.
They do not have any particular supernatural powers except for telepathy, and can communicate with those strong in this skill. The green sea monster has a very tough hide of interlacing scales that is very difficult to pierce. Atlantean warriors are known to test their prowess by trying to harpoon and ride green sea monsters when they venture to the deeps. The monsters can dive to great depths and have an immense tidal volume for holding their breath up to four hours, perhaps even longer.
