! This is a rare creature/object. It may only be scanned in one or few encounters.

Ice Burrowers live in the Phendrana Drifts region on Tallon IV in Metroid Prime. Ice Burrowers are similar to their "cousins", but have slightly adapted their bodies to compensate for their freezing surroundings by developing shell-like ice plating. They still retain the ability to launch acid as they emerge from the ground, so it is advisable to locate and eliminate them by looking for a moving lump in the snow. Ice Burrowers are found in Plaza Walkway and Ruins Entryway.
