Land Pikes are amphibious predators that can be encountered in or near water. They are sometimes found underground in flooded ruins.
Although slow on land, these creatures often mass together in groups to corner and bring down prey. Their four walking fins are clawed and webbed, allowing the Land Pike to climb up steep banks, staircases, and the sides of water vessels.
Land Pikes continue to grow continuously throughout life and can be found in various sizes. Here are their game stats:
