Does anyone see the floods resemblance to moss?

Does anyone think that they wanted the flood to look like moss, because they really look like moss is on them.

  • Ah, but the host would be turned to moss, not the parasite. Therefore it still fits into the [i]Bryophyta[/i] genus.

  • Ironically enough however, moss is a member of the phylum [i]Bryophyta[/i], and is therefore by definition, [b]non-parasitic[/b]. So yeah, looks like moss, but about as polar opposite as it gets in all other characteristics.

  • Well, the flood [i]do[/i] turn their hosts into a sponge-like material. Last I checked, moss is sponge-like....

  • I don't know a lot about that but the closest thing in real life is probably Cordyceps. Those poor ants... :(
