Don't Mutalisks ever land?

Zerg Discussion
They must be exhausted, what with those wings constantly flapping. Don't they ever take five? Perch on a hatchery or something?
I imagine OP with his 12 marauders getting muta harassed thinking "DON'T YOU GUYS GET TIRED? COME DOWN HERE AND TAKE A BREAK :("
Lore-wise, they can land and slither like a serpent upon doing so. I think it's "Speed of Darkness" in which they describe a grounded Mutalisk and the manner in which it moves upon such, it's an awkward movement if not mistaken...it's been a while.
I assume they perch in the Spire.
They only stop to perch on the dead terran carcasses, which we all know is after the match is over so we don't see it.

5 hour energy. Hours of energy now, no "Damn it, I need to land and get hit by Siege tanks" feeling later.
They never live long enough to get tired.

You sir, win an internets.
Their blood is red bull.

RED BULL GIVES WIIIIINGS
Question of the century, i always thought that they hung upside down like bats from an Ultralisk or something.
They could probably relax a bit when they're in space, but they still flap their wings even though there's no way that could do anything. Maybe it's involuntary.

Depends upon the Shark, nurse Sharks do while Great Whites do not...if I'm not mistaken.

Okay Mr Killjoy.
why don't they just effortlessly levitate like overlords, broodlords, and corrputors?

If any fish stops swimming it will not have enough water running through its' gills and will suffocate. Unless it has a means otherwise to store oxygen or pump water through its gill, a fish always has to move.
It's an optical illusion, just like that Old Spice commercial where the dude is standing on a log in the lake and bakes a cake and uses a saw to cut through the counter before flying into the hot tub. If you zoom in real close there are wires (on the mutalisk, the Old Spice guy just used magic).

Not all fish need to constantly swim.

And why do you think Mutas cost 50 gas? So they don't have to land.

Unfortunately, Sharks aren't fish. And so long as there's a current that will pass awter through their gills, they don't necessarily have to be swimming (although in order to stay in a single place in the current, this is usually required).

Sharks are fish.
