Angel Pods are simpleMaxis-made early creatures, present in the final game. Their name may refer to the pod of poison held above their head, like a halo on an angel. Their physiology is similar to that of Mini-tri, so they may have evolved from the same or similar cells.
Angel Pods are able to bite and spit poison at other creatures, though this is often only done in self-defense, as Angel Pods are herbivores. They will sometimes attempt to impress others by singing, though they are not yet very skilled at this activity. These are some of the few creatures emerging from the sea which are able to jump. It is interesting to note that the Angel Pod is most likely the predecessor to the Minion "Chrono Striker" of EA's Darkspore.
