我发誓，我在这里遇到的每一个新生物都让我更加确信他们的基因都被篡改了。我知道我是对的。就拿这个我称之为“远古莱尼颚虫”的怪物来说吧 —— 虽然它大到能够称霸恐怖头条！但是它却很轻，以至于可以飞行和在水上滑行。更难以置信的是它能分泌出一种用途多样的快速硬化脂状物！可以用它加厚外壳以增强防御力，或者像射出子弹一样地进行远程投射攻击，并且投射物在击中目标时会变硬，继而粘住来袭的敌人！
Common name: Rhyniognatha
Species: Rhyniognatha antiquagenitor
Time: Early Devonian
I swear, every new creature I come across here makes me more sure they've all had their genes tampered with. I know I'm right about this. Take this monster bug I'm calling 'Rhyniognatha antiquagenitor' -- big enough to headline a horror flick, but still light enough to fly and skate across water. Would you believe it also makes a weirdly useful, quick-hardening resin with a variety of uses? It can thicken up its shell for a defensive boost, spray hard bullet-like globs, or squirt soft globs that harden on impact to gum up incoming predators!
These overgrown earwigs are just what you need to level up your tribe's aerial defenses! And here's a tip: if you crush up the right Arthropleura, you'll get an enzyme that makes Rhyniognatha glue as TEK-disruptive as Dinopithecus dung. Plus this bug can glue itself to creatures or cargo and carry things around your base! That said, Rhyniognatha-raising isn't for the squeamish...
Their males have a pheromone that invites egg-laying females to use them as hosts. Harvest that pheromone, and you can mark any creature for the female to lay her eggs on. The host then incubates a new generation of larvae that can reap its best traits in the process. If some poor beast gets eggs laid on it by accident, you might still be able to save it by popping it in a cryopod and freezing out the larvae.
