The lake is the new territory that the Clans moved to in the end of Dawn after the forest was cut down and destroyed. Erin Hunter said that she made up this territory. The territories go as follow: WindClan, who hunt hares and rabbits, live on the largest territory in the lake: fields.  ThunderClan lives in a deciduous forest, feasting on mice and voles. ShadowClan, the frog and lizard hunters, live in a pine swamp with a deciduous copse.  RiverClan lives on a reedy, pebbly plain near the river Alba. They hunt trout and salmon fish. RiverClan also have a mangrove and willow copse.
