Alien Species

A live Taspar visible inside the egg

Taspars are small, gelatinous molluskoids which live inside an egg-like enclosure, at least during some point of their lives. Taspar eggs are occasionally eaten by Cardassians, in spite of the fact that many are revolted by the sight of the live creature inside the egg.

As with many other Cardassian creatures, it is currently unknown what became of Taspars after the heavy bombardment of Cardassia Prime by the Breen and the Dominion, after Cardassians decided to change sides on the war. It is even possible that Taspars are now extinct.
