Behaviour and DietEdit
These insects live alone, not in a hive. They feed on the moss and lichen, and occasionally the snow, like larger hydrovores. Their primary defence against predators is camouflage. If this fails, it shall run and hide or, depending on the predator, fight back with its spikes.
When hiding, the roll over backwards, to hide the spikes, which stand out in the snow, as they are a dull yellow.
The live on the icy wastes of Lumi, especially in rocky areas, where the black-and-white patchwork means their colouration is the perfect camouflage.
