Ice Burrowers are mostly similar to their heat-loving cousins, but have adapted themselves well to the frigid environment of Phendrana Drifts. They are slightly tougher than their cousins, but still spend most of their time underground, only surfacing to attack potential threats with well-placed ice projectiles.
- "The Ice Burrower is a hardy life form that has adapted to the frigid climate of Phendrana. It spends most of its time tunneling through the frozen soil, but occasionally surfaces to attack passers-by." — Logbook "Ice Burrower" (Metroid Prime)
