The quill lurker has replaced its ancestor for a very big reason; The rocky bearhog. This fat green tank of a creature has found its way into the Krakow Rocky, and its become the quill lurker's only real predator. These towering plents were easily killing the Lurkers, which prompted a change within the species. Thick quills began to grow from the Lurkers back to discourage bearhogs from trying to crush them underfoot or bite them. The quills are laid down against the organism's back so as not to hinder speed when the lurker is running. Only when it is in danger does the lurker spread its quills.
