Squiggly

Squiggly is a Maxis-made cell that appears in the Cell Stage at Level 4. They first appear as Predator-sized, and very rarely, Epic-sized. It resembles the earlier Grubby in that both are green flagella-bearing herbivores with multiple eyes.

Squiggly has a strange behavior for a herbivore: when hurt by your cell, Squiggly will chase you and start biting like a carnivore.

This seems to be because, according to the old concept art, Squiggly was designed to have a carnivorous mouth. However, since it's a herbivore, its bites don't hurt your cell. It can also hurt you with its spikes even when it's bite-sized (similar to Junior, though it is less of a pain since it does not actively try to hurt you). It is preyed upon by all carnivorous cells close to their size group: Epic Snorf, Junior, Puffish, Predator Megamouth, Predator Paa and Jawhead can attack them. Due to a possible glitch, or just to make Squiggly more unique, sometimes Squiggly appears as an epic even on easy mode.

The best way to kill Squiggly is by attacking its rear end with spikes repeatedly.
