Omanyte has a large, pale yellow shell on its back. Its main body is sky blue with ten tentacles, two of which are longer than the other eight. Omanyte has saucer-like eyes. It uses the many gas-filled chambers in its helix shell to remain buoyant in the water column. It regulates its buoyancy by evacuating gases from compartments. Its shell turns into the Fossil that is used to resurrect it. Its height is 1'04" and weight is 16.5 lbs.
Male omanyte have penises, whereas female omanytes have vagiholes. This can be traced back to the 1st century when omanytess first diverted from the clan of abuts, producing the genders we can recognise today.
Omanyte swims by twisting its ten tentacles about. If attacked by an enemy, it withdraws itself inside its hard shell.
