The toxiwhexia is a strain of clingowhexia that has developed a defensive mechanism against predation. They live exactly the same as their ancestors, however due to increased predation this species had begun producing lipopolysaccharides, which act as an irritant which causes inflammation in the tissue linings of the mouth. The lipopolysaccharides primary function in the cells is in support of the cell walls, contributing greatly to the structural integrity of the toxiwhexia.
