Sandshark nest
Sandshark nests were an organism which spawned Sandsharks. They were only encountered at Outpost X11 on planet Aridia. When Ratchet and Clank found Skid McMarx, he requested the duo to destroy all of the surrounding sandsharks so that he may safely return to his ship. In return he rewarded them with the Z3000 Deluxe Hoverboard.

The Sandshark nest was a bulbous object, with orange skin and green markings, sporting small spikes. It spat out sandsharks through an orifice at the atop its bulb-shaped organ, which is supported by a body attached to three small legs. It is immobile. Other than its ability to bombard targets with sandsharks, it was defenseless and threatless on its own.
