So how do you guys think hybrids could work? Say you wanted to be a plant/fungi hybrid. Would you begin as a fungus and and have to try and be assimilated by a host or would you begin as an animal and assimilate the fungus.
If it was full assimilation, then I reckon the two organisms would pretty much become so genetically in-tune that they'd be one organism. So the effects of symbiosis remain, just the game would consider it one organism.
I have no idea what it'd look like, or how it'd work in the real world.
Then again, there IS that one photosynthesizing sea slug (Elysia chlorotica) that incorporates chloroplasts from the algae it eats into its own body. That what you're thinking? Kind of assimilating a new organelle on steroids, I'd assume.
well animal hybrids like prizzlys (polar bears and grizzly hybrid) and ligers (lion and tiger hybrid) do appear natruly in the wild under certain sitattions so thats possible but im not sure about what your going on aboout
