Red and Blue Yellow Gold Silver Crystal
A common sight in
forests and woods.
It flaps its
wings at ground
level to kick up
blinding sand.
Very docile. If
attacked, it will
often kick up
sand to protect
itself rather
than fight back.
It usually hides
in tall grass. Be-
cause it dislikes
fighting, it pro-
tects itself by
kicking up sand.
Common in grassy
areas and forests,
it is very docile
and will chase off
enemies by flap-
ping up sand.
It rapidly flaps
its wings in the
grass, stirring up
a dust cloud that
drives insect prey
out into the open.
