Gold Silver Crystal
Its entire body is
shielded by a
steel-hard shell.
What lurks inside
the armor is a
total mystery.
It remains immova-
bly rooted to its
tree. It scatters
pieces of its hard
shell to drive its
enemies away.
Usually found
hanging on to a
fat tree trunk. It
shoots out bits of
its shell when it
sees action.
