A vaguely interesting critter (MicroPond V2)

<-Could these be the "Omega-Critter"?
This was a surprise to me. I thought it would take eight segments to produce a critter that protected its photosynthesize segment (the green pixel). But random mutatation and natural selection found this simpler solution, which is seven segments long. Because critters can't attack diagonally, the center area is safe.
