The Lamprey is a tier 2 animal.


  • Worms evolve into lampreys.
    • 4,000 XP is required for a worm to evolve into a lamprey.
  • Lampreys evolve into jellyfish, frogs, flying fish, and giant isopods.
    • 7,000 XP is required for a lamprey to evolve into the next animal.
  • Lampreys drop meat, upon death
  • As a lamprey, friendly fire is turned off for other lampreys and oarfish: meaning you cannot damage them nor be damaged by them nor attach to them.
