The Missing Link, also known as the Living Fossil, presents the stage between fish and amphibians. In some religions, however, the Missing Link is a by-product created from leftover parts when fish and amphibians are first created. It's small and slimy, with scales so small you can bare tell that it has scales at all. It has webbed front legs and large hind flippers. It's bulging eyes rarely look in the same direction, and it has a few bony protrusions resembling teeth. Some people place a high value on this creature's live capture, while others would prefer to kill it on sight. Either way, it's unsightly and awkward, barely capable of ensuring its own survival.
