The cochlea is a creature native to an unnamed world in the Pegasus Galaxy.
A pale, whorled creature seven or eight inches long was leaving a trail of slime. The cochlea is a mollusk creature that lives in the coastal caves of their world. They feed off miniature sea creatures and fish eggs. It’s believed that the genetic material of these creatures derive many of the technologies used by the Wraith.
