Stalker notes (part 4) is the 4th part in the Stalker Notes. It is dropped by Flesh-spoiler Haasghenahk. The author, Grondaban, describes another unique way of the stalker's reproduction behavior. In the journal, Grondaban witnesses a bovimastyx wander in the reproduction pools when the Flesh-spoiler stunned it and exploded, spawning Flesh-spoiler spawns to devour the bovimastyx.

My studies into the stalkers have given me a reputation among the other mages, as if my findings are less worthwhile than their empty parlor tricks. They cannot see the magnificence of the stalker, the repugnant wonder that fills you whenever you stare into their eyes. Just yesterday, I stumbled upon another reason to admire them. While I sat and sketched in a stalker nesting pool, a bovimastyx wandered in. Before I could shepherd it back out, a large single-eyed stalker rose from the pools and began circling it, its single pupil flashing with some form of luminescence. I sat back down and took notes, while the bovimastyx whinnied and looked understandably uncomfortable. Halting suddenly, the stalker flashed a red pupil and exploded with a thunderous crack, knocking the mastyx to the floor, bloody and stunned. I could only watch in fascination as smaller stalkers slipped from the larger stalker's carcass and began to devour both the body of the mastyx and what must have been their mother. A wondrous sight.
