Two broodlings are created using a queen's Spawn Broodling ability and last a maximum of 180 seconds. Broodlings can wreak havoc in a siege tank artillery line.

Broodling SCR HeadAnim

Unit profile from Starcraft: Remastered

In Dark Origin, slaying all the ursadons creates a broodling from one of their stomachs that does not have a 'countdown' life span. Aside from that it behaves like any other broodling and may be mind-controlled by a dark archon.[1]
