Hey! Pikmin logs

This creature has undergone extreme evolution to the point that it's now half-mechanical. It shows no mercy to any target in sight. Can we really call this a creature, or is it more of a weapon? It pains me to see that this is the direction evolution is heading. I'd always hoped to become gentler, not more vicious.
