About the course
The field of animal physiology extends the tools and methods of human physiology to non-human animal species. Plant physiology also borrows techniques from both fields. Its scope of subjects is at least as diverse as the tree of life itself. Due to this diversity of subjects, research in animal physiology tends to concentrate on understanding how physiological traits changed throughout the evolutionary history of animals. Other major branches of scientific study that have grown out of physiology research include biochemistry, biophysics, paleobiology, biomechanics, and pharmacology.
Below you will find information on the aurixan physical appearance, and explanations of details spanning from (but not bound to) their skeletal structure to their senses.
Brain & Nerve Center
Below is a list of the various evolutionary traits the Aurix have gained that have yet to go obsolete with time.
Advanced Brain: The Aurix have become extremely intelligent, with an approximate intelligence comparable to that of a dolphin.
Humanoid Eyesight: The eyes are the Aurix's main line of awareness, and reside on tiny stalks to help them see a little better. Due to a protective layering, they are capable of sight above water.
Thickened Eyestalks: With thicker eyestalks, the Aurix have been able to evolve stronger eyes, as the fleshier eyestalks can hold larger nerve cords to which can attach to the brain.
All-Purpose Sight: z
Clubbed Antennae: Clubbed Antennae allow rudimentary smelling capabilities otherwise not found in the Aurix anatomy. They are small and insignificant, forcing the Aurix to drop their heads close to the ground so that these small, weak antennae can attempt to track prey.
Simple Nerve Endings:
Simple Internal Ears:
Basic Magnetite Sensors:
Weak Ampullae of Lorenzini: The Aurix eventually evolved the ability to sense electrical discharges made by all living creatures through a sequence of sensitive pores located along their proboscis..
v Offensive Evolutions:
Sharp Cnidocytes: Located on the bottoms of both pairs of tentacle-arms, generally used when prey gets unruly to help the Aurix escape, hopefully unharmed, although occasionally used to hold onto something better (although only VERY slightly better). With the evolution of the bone scythe stinger tail, this has fallen into heavy disuse.
Weak Neurotoxin: The sharp tentacle cnidocytes, as well as the dual venom sacs and the skin itself, are filled with a weak dosage of an endogenous neurotoxin known as glutamate, which is normally found as a primary neurotransmitter in the brain.
Electroplaques (Somewhat Weak Voltage): The Aurix have obtained the uncanny ability to constantly discharge electricity through the waters (as well as through the air, although at a much less powerful strength) surrounding them due to hundreds of disk-shaped cells stacked on top of one another like batteries, which are stored within the muscles of the tail.
Radula: Located at the very back of an Aurum's mouth is a tongue, which usually lies in a tiny recess with a flap of skin to cover it when in disuse, as to allow food to flow smoothly through the throat and down into the stomach.
Weakly Poisonous Skin:
Fair Poison Resistance:
Bony Calcium Endoskeleton
