Someone asked me, the other day, how the Fillipods "advanced," as a culture, without opposable digits. This will be on the eventual encyclopedia entry, but what the heck: Let's talk about it, now. It's a fun question!
A Fillipod can grip in one of two ways:
1.) They're walking stalks can be brought together to form a basic "grip," or, more commonly...
2.) Each individual stalk employs van der Waals forces four to five times more effectively than, say, a gecko's feet could, to "grab" everyday objects.
This has been your GALACTIC FUN FACT!
