Each tentacle is it's own organism and can detach to create it's own colony in another organic life form. They are Class- AC on the Galactic Council Federation's Danger scale as they completely destroy the host organism before moving on and are extremely hard to kill. This is the highest level of danger any organism can obtain. They are considered generally sapient as the show signs of high intellect. They are primarily found on planet T88678 in the Zin Tao Solar System in the Andromeda galaxy. However they have begun to spread throughout the universe and have been documented in the Pinwheel Galaxy, Sombrero Galaxy and the Milky Way Galaxy.
