Steven is a Gebluck, and he just turned 7 on February 29th. He is warm blooded, and unfortunately, he did not receive the dominant gene for arms, so he cannot correctly do things on his own, such as make his own food or bathe himself. His favorite meal is Spaghetti with alfredo sauce and sausages. His favorite drink is pink lemonade. Steven breathes in the CO2 that we release.
Steven is from one of Saturn’s moons, “Titan.” The environment on Titan is very much like Earth’s environment, but it much colder, from -330 to -290 degrees! On Earth, Steven lives in the North Pole. He has four different sets of lungs, that can handle different environments throughout the years.
Geblucks hold a gene for arms. The arms hold the dominant trait, while no arms are recessive. Steven was not lucky and ended up without arms.
Steven's Punnett Square
Chance of being born with arms.
Each Gebluck differs in the number of red stripes on the piece of material, which allows researchers and scientist to distinguish the different Geblucks.
The genetic material of the Gebluck looks identical to a candy cane.
The Geblucks reproduce by using their own mating calls, it is only able to be heard by other Geblucks. They stretch out their tails to touch the tail of the other mate.
Geblucks are mammals, so the females are pregnant for one year, and then give birth to an adult size Gebluck.
After touching tails, they rub their heads together and use their one curl on the top of their heads to transfer the genetic material.
The unique genetic material of the Gebluck allows each individual Gebluck to change a characteristic of theirs depending on a situation they are in. Their tails could turn into sharp and deadly swords, their foot can turn into an elastic long arm to defend themselves, and many other features that each Gebluck has, and not one has the same feature, like The Incredibles.
Not only does the Gebluck have their own individual characteristic of defense, but they also have a specific scream, if they trigger this scream, lava comes out of the mouth of the Gebluck, which hits the attacker and is a form of protection.
When transmitting the genetic material of a Gebluck to another cell, the candy cane like material hooks onto another candy cane, which allows the DNA from one candy cane to be transmitted into the other candy cane.
To transmit the genetic material to offspring, after the candy canes hook onto each other, they are transmitted to the new cells. The genetic information is stored in the tip of the single curl of the Gebluck, which is how they mate with each other. After they are finished mating, the transmission begins to go to the offspring being created.
