Gobblers are false fish with eight backbones and two skulls that form the jaws of a mouth between them. They are the same upside-up or upside-down and very fast. They swoop in unexpectedly and grab smaller animals in their long teeth, often plucking them off the sides of weeds or sea scoops.
In the diagram of the gobbler, we see a rather typical false fish body plan. It has eight backbones and six skulls, each containing brains of varying sizes. Muscles and blood vessels have been removed for clarity.
A) The two foremost skulls form between them the jaws of the only mouth. Each has two eyes.
B) This is the sonic stomach. The bones around it vibrate to aid in cleaning flesh off the bones of prey. The bones can then be spit out while the flesh is passed to the main stomach.
C) This is the main stomach.
D) This organ acts as both pancreas and liver.
E) This is the intestine.
F) These pores (modified mouths) draw in water and send it to the internal gill.
G) Spent water from the internal gill and kidneys exits through this pore.
H) This is the heart. Animals of Ectora have cells that are sensitive to changes in blood pressure. To maintain constant pressure, blood is divided into three or more (in this case five) parallel tubes that beat out of step with one another before being recombined at the other end.
I) This is the hemobarostat. It stores excess blood and helps to maintain blood pressure. Gobblers have three of them.
J) This is the hemoacidostat. It maintains blood PH.
K) These are the gonads. Another set exists at the top of the organism. During mating, gobblers interface their gonopores and the male will inject 6-celled gametes into the female. Days after fertilization, the free-swimming larvae will exit.
