Vrtragian Shriekbat

Unknown[Metroid Prime]

Metroid Prime

Vrtragian Shriekbats are fiercely territorial insectoids and will dive-bomb anything that wanders near. This attack is fatal for the Shriekbat, as the impact sets off a discharge of thermal energy. Because of their high internal temperatures, they tend to seek cool climates to dwell in. They have come to seek shelter inside the many pirate facilities located on the Pirate Homeworld.
