"The ghekula is an amphibious creature found in the swamps beneath Le-Koro on the island of Mata Nui. The activities of the Bohrok have forced the gekula [sic] to migrate, and many of them are seeking the calmer waters near Ga-Koro. The ghekula are regarded highly by the Matoran, and it is considered bad luck to hurt one."

Ghekula are peaceful amphibious Rahi.
Some Ghekula were found in the waters around Metru Nui.[citation needed: RB?] After the Great Cataclysm, many migrated to the newly-formed island of Mata Nui, where they established themselves in the Fau Swamp of Le-Wahi. At some point before the coming of the Toa Mata, the unscrupulous Po-Matoran Ahkmou organized a scheme of selling "lucky Ghekula" to superstitious Matoran. This was stopped by the Turaga.[BEU, p. 39]
When the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, many Ghekula emigrated from the Matoran Universe to Spherus Magna.[OGDi: Apr 4 2010, 12:11 PM][OGDi: Apr 7 2010, 01:19 PM]
Abilities and Traits
Ghekula are amphibious Rahi that dwell in swamps. They are considered to be a natural enemy of the Bog Snake. Harming a Ghekula, whether intentional or accidental, is considered by Matoran to be a harbinger of bad luck.[BEU, p. 39]
The Ghekula can be built from 8562 Gahlok and 8564 Lehvak. Instructions for the Ghekula were printed in the May–June 2002 issue of LEGO Magazine. They were also hosted in the Build it Home section of the LEGO Club website.
