Stalkers are tall, stilt-legged beetles. These animals
seem to serve a similar ecological role as the giraffes
of ancient Earth. It's diet is mainly plant matter,
though it is known to consume small animals when necessary.
These creatures live throughout Rubi-Ka, from forestlands
to grasslands to deserts. Stalkers will never attack
unless provoked, unless you encounter to more predatory
creatures of the wild Artery Valley. These Striker Stalkers
are much taller than typical Stalkers, and due to intense
competition from more dangerous animals, have adapted
their diet to include more animal proteins, and as such
are extremely aggressive.
Stalkers are typically used in horticultural situations,
especially for crop harvesting and forest control. The
role of the Stalkers is very important in early terraforming
situations, as they prevent trees from overgrowing beyond
optimal oxygen production.
