The Shirk flies around in a circle like the Gullug and Senjoo. It will not track Samus, but will deal a lot of damage on contact. Destroy it from a distance. Drops missiles.
The Japanese name is “Shark” (シャーク). Contrary to the official description, it will not actively try to ram Samus with its spikes, but just flies in a circle.
