	The unique makeup of Moslun’s crust makes the planet a breeding ground for luminescent crystals. These glowing gems combined with the abundance of life that has evolved to feed on said crystals have made dark areas rare if not nonexistent on Moslun, even in the depths of the ocean.

	Species USKVHK-59462, colloquially known as the Mirror Squid, is an oceanic herbivore native to Moslun. They possess a roughly cylindrical body with 3 bony rings going around it. This body is, on average, 0.5 meters long and 10 centimeters in diameter. They have 2 eyes that are placed opposite one another at the head. The head splits into four grasping tentacles that aid in locomotion and bring food to the mouth, which lies in between said tentacles. 3 additional tentacles are located at the other end of the Mirror Squid, which are used for locomotion. The Mirror Squid does not have an anus or genitals, and uses its mouth for all orifice-related purposes.
	Mirror Squids live off the various passive vegetation that live on the ocean floor. They use their front tentacles to rip said vegetation out from the soil and rock and bring it to their mouth. They do not have teeth, and instead use a powerful digestive enzyme to break down their food.
	When confronted by a predator, Mirror Squids will flatten their bodies and use their uniquely adapted chromatophores in order to turn their skin into a living mirror. This creates a mirror image of the attacking predator in the hopes of scaring it off with its own fearsome display. These chromatophores are created through a biological process using bits of Moslun’s famous glowing minerals that exist in the Mirror Squid’s food source.
	Mirror Squids are sexless. They reproduce by releasing sex cells from their mouth into the water. Each sex cell will drift through the water until it meets another sex cell, at which point the two will fuse together and begin slowly growing into a baby Mirror Squid. These infants are unable to perform the mirror display that adults use to protect themselves, and rely on hiding among crevices in order to survive due to the fact that Mirror Squids do not care for their young.
	Mirror Squids are currently being studied in the hopes that their unique chromatophores will be able to be reverse engineered in order to help create better adaptive displays.
