About

Golus are 4-6 cm marine snails, with a hard coiled shell. Easily startled the golus is capable of suddenly jetting backwards through the water, as a means of escaping predators. They have short tails and twin eyes on stalks which extend out from under the shells forward lip. Males of the species are found to be smaller on average than the females and lack the eggs laying pores on their bellies. Both sexes care for and tend to the eggs once laid.
Golus are found amongst the egg brood of Parvils, where they eat algae, and lay their own eggs (~700). They exist in a symbiotic relationship with the larger predator, caring for the Parvil’s eggs, in exchange for the protection they are afforded. They are also known to excrete a toxic gel, which coats the Parvil’s, and their own eggs. By virtue of their symbiotic relationship, Parvil are immune to the poison.
