DarwinIV life at its finest.
About this creation
the Arrowtoungue is an apex predator of DarwinIV. it uses a sonar sense to see things. it gets its name for it's projectile toungue, which is able to fire up to 26 feet and impale its prey with the sharp end. (kinda like a giant chameleon) all in a split second, the toungue snaps back and the Arrowtoungue waits for its prey to die.

the book describes a scene where an Arrowtougue hunts Thornbacks. the scene describing the "gyser of blood" that shot "3 feet into the air" put an [i]exelent[/i] image in my head.

   factoid: this was the first creature seen in the DarwinIV mission.
however, in WDB's book, it was not. the Rayback was first in his book.
