Chute Lurkers were a rare type of omnivorous Rahi.
Chute Lurkers preferred to hunt in the interior of Metru Nui chutes. They have the ability of breathing liquid protodermis, although they can also breathe air as well. However, the Chute Lurkers rather tried avoiding being outside of the chutes anymore than they had to be.
When the Great Cataclysm occurred and with the Chute System damaged by it; they were forced to abandon their usual hunting ground due to lack of food. However, once the Chute Lurkers emerged from the damaged chutes, they became targets of the Visorak.
They later migrated to Spherus Magna.
Abilities and Traits
Chute Lurkers hunted by locking themselves in place inside a chute with their arms (preferably at a sharp corner, where a traveler is less likely to spot the Rahi ahead of time), and waiting for other Rahi, objects, or a Matoran to pass close enough for the Rahi to grab it. Once caught by a Chute Lurker, there was rarely any escape unless the captive was aided by a Matoran or a Vahki.
