Tokorats, small-to-microscopic false crustaceans and the most numerous consumers in the weedy seas, are the ticks of planet Ectora. They spend their lives crawling through the weed clumps and sucking out juices. Some are able to burrow inside. Others are unable to pierce the thick skins of the sunburst weeds and instead wait for swimming weeds to pass by where they will attach themselves. More than a few species will actually attach to animals and suck blood instead. They will have anywhere from four to ten mouths and any number of legs modified for walking, climbing, swimming, grasping, or digging.
