Sea Lice Rank

At the start of the Plant chapter, crawl in the big patch of Sea Lice (The big tan spot on the ground), and a Sea Lice will appear in your inventory, slowly eating your Rations. If you keep it for the duration of the game, you will get the rank of Sea Lice at the end. If you decide to get rid of it, you have to rapidly move the item menu to eventually shake it out of your inventory.
