And why don't they flee when covered in water in the hopes of finding high ground?

Perhaps water is dangerous to them, and makes their movements more sluggish. Maybe it' like an acidic glue? I dunno :p

Most likely it is that they still breathe, just doesn't matter on what gas type it breathes in. Liquid on the other hand will cause any type of breathing to stop and as a result, drowning.

They can survive perfectly fine in a vacuum though.

Plus they don't actually remove any gas from the air.

Its probably that they try to consume the resource and are allergic to water so they are not even drowning but dying of food poisoning.

this being water and ice are different in the state of the meal its trying to consume
