The Lurker Den was developed in 2010, but cut in the alpha stages of StarCraft II, and has since been brought back with Legacy of the Void. The Lurker Den can be morphed from a Drone once a Hydralisk Den has been built. Prior to patch 4.0, the Lurker Den was morphed from the Hydralisk Den. The Lurker Den allows Lurkers to be morphed from Hydralisks.
