A Cell using the Mating Call ability

Mating Call is an ability used for the Cell StageCreature Stage and Adventures.

The Mating Call becomes available in Cell Stage after obtaining 14 or more DNA points. Player can only mate in Cell Stage by performing the Mating Call and swimming over to another member of player's species.

In Creature Stage, the main purpose of this ability is to help lead back to the player's home nest and find a mate, approaching the same species as your creature will request to mate with creature. After the animation of laying an egg the player will enter the Creature Editor. Using the Mating Call near to the nest of a hostile species will attract their attention. All mouths contain the mating call ability.

In adventures, it has no purpose for use.
