|Iridescent Glint Beetle|

|Underground Areas|| Frontier Cavern, Bulblax Kingdom, Submerged Castle, Hole of Heroes, Dream Den|

This variety of beetle consumes subterranean materials. Due to the fact that it rarely emerges above ground, sightings of this particular species are extremely rare. While minerals are this beast's primary source of food, the beetle itself does not have the ability to digest these minerals. Instead, metabacteria living inside the beetle's stomach chemically break down the minerals. The resulting purified metal is discharged, but rare metals such as gold and platinum crystallize onto the iridescent glint beetle's shell, resulting in the beautiful laminated shimmer.
This precious treat is exceptionally rare. I could sell it back as home for a fortune! Then, I could use the cash to upgrade my kitchen, buy galactic-class ingredients, and even star in my own cooking show... The Insect Gourmet!
