UltraliskCavern SC2 Rend3

The ultralisk cavern

The zerg ultralisk cavern is a shelled structure in which there are numerous high-radiation deposits and other dangerous substances. It is in this extremely hostile environment that the ultralisk gains its toughness. In addition, it provides all of the genetic coding for the larva to morph into the breed itself.[1]

During the Brood War, the ultralisk caverns could also provide additional genetic mutations for Anabolic Synthesis (for faster movement) and Chitinous Plating (for improved armor).[2]
