Gizmo 

The Gizmo is passed on by sprankling water on it then it pops. Also when it eats grass overnight the women lay down eggs. That is how the dna is passed down.

DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) is the instructions that control the construction and maintance of an organism. It Contains the gentic information for inherited Traits.
