The Edible Felix (felux edibilis) is a rare species of Felix that is almost extinct. In the wild and captivity. The reason that they are so close to extinction is because that they are the 3rd most delicious food in existence.
The anatomy of the Edible Felix is very similar to that of a human. The main difference is the presence of attachments to the kidneys which convert unwanted chemical waste products into a molecule called flavouratine. The flavouratine is then pumped around the body into various bodily organs increasing their deliciousness rating. Any chemical product that cannot be converted to flavouratine is bonded together with gluonite molecules along with desgustur, a byproduct of the flavouratine producing process and pumped to the fingernails creating the black gunk underneath the nails of a Felix. This gunk is then extracted by the Felix by use of behavioural patterns. An Edible Felix's deliciousness is rated on a scale of 12 with 12 being the most delicious and 0 being not delicious at all. For a Felix's deliciousness scale to rise by one it must be left to produce flavouratine for one day, however for each time the scale rises by one so does the time flavouratine production must be left before the scale rises again, so if a Felix is on a score of 0 it will take 1 day to increase by one, but then it will be a score 1 and so it will take 2 days to increase to score 2.
The Edible Felix is mostly, nowadays, a domesticated species and will eat most food placed in front of it. One major element of their diet is the Water Shutes (aquamet gluoniteas) from which they extract the gluonite molecules required for disposing the of the desgustur and the sulphur atoms required for constructing flavouratine molecules.
Edible Felixes can only be found in the Feluxian Assortment with the exception of Felix scholars working in fungological institutions or on research trips.
