The Skeeterskate is a member of the Unknown Family in Pikmin 3. It is an insectoid creature that exclusively skims around the surface of the water.


The Skeeterskate skims around the surface of the water until it spots the group, it will then use the pouch located on its head to shoot jets of water at the Pikmin drowning any that isn't a Blue Pikmin. To kill them easily, the captains must throw a Pikmin right on the pouch, which will break it and kill the creature instantly.
