Vicious, pack-hunting predator. 94% muscle, 4% connective tissue, 2% brain. Indiscriminate when hungry. Almost always hungry.

Small predator that shares close resemblance to the more common biter, but tends towards a more solitary, less aggressive hunting style.


Biters are a small, aggressive fauna species, mostly dwelling in the Grassy Plateaus, Mountains, and the Jellyshroom Cave. The Biter is an extremely fast and territorial fish. It occasionally emits quiet growls and clicks. It will attack without hesitation if the player gets too close.

The Blighter is a subspecies of the Biter that can be found around the Blood Kelp Caves, Blood Kelp Zone, and The Lost River. Much like its relative, the Blighter is a very territorial creature and will attack the player when nearby.
