ANNULATA - Eastern Bandy-Bandy

ANiMOZ #120

Code: ANNULATA

Common name: Eastern bandy-bandy

Taxonomy: Vermicella annulata

Level: CARN | Form: VENOM

Status: RARE | BiOME: SCRUB

Overcomes: DROUGHT

SUPERPOWERS:

FLICKER FUSION

ANNULATA’s FLICKER FUSION power confuses his predators by using the regular, banded pattern of his body to create a flickering illusion - particularly in the dim light of night. Because of the way this Superpower works, it is only effective if the predator’s ‘critical fusion frequencies’ in their eyes (how they see light) is of a lower frequency to the flickering effect created by ANNULATA!

HOOPING

By turning her body into a string of large loops, her HOOPING Superpowers confuses and intimidates potential predators. She keeps her tail closest to the threat, with her head hidden behind the loops of her body!

WEAKNESSES:

NOVA

ANNULATA automatically loses a Clash against NOVA.

STRiGO

ANNULATA automatically loses a Clash against STRiGO.
