ATTRIBUTES: 8 inches in diameter, 1 host required for next mutation. These baby metroids cannot permanently cling to you, so the same hatchling can attack you in multiple instances.
MODEL STATUS: 0%
Once you let a pod hatch, a tiny basketball size metroid will hatch with only with one thing in mind....dinner. They are not very hard to kill as a couple of blasts from your weapons will splatter it, the hard part is actually trying to detect them as they can become completely see-thru like a jellyfish. That is the easy part, the challenge will come when you are trying to aim and get in a couple of shots as they are very quick and agile (like trying to catch a hummingbird with a fly swatter). They will not attack you immediately, instead they will keep out of sight and wait for the perfect time to attack.
