Lakelurks are mutated snapping turtles that live around aquatic areas like Lake Mead. They attack by using shrieking sonic pulse waves to stun enemies, then rip them apart using their claws. They are fiercely territorial and extremely aggressive, attacking almost anything that comes near them or their nests. They are usually found in small groups of two to three, though can occasionally be found in larger groups comprised of around five to eight. They have a high Perception, which makes them very quick to find potential prey within their immediate area.
