Red and Blue Yellow Gold Silver Crystal
Lives in the
shadows of tall
trees where it
eats insects. It
is attracted by
light at night.
Its large eyes act
as radars. In a
bright place, you
can see that they
are clusters of
many tiny eyes.
Its eyes also
function as radar
units. It catches
and eats small
bugs that hide in
Poison oozes from
all over its body.
It catches and
eats small bugs at
night that are at-
tracted by light.
The small bugs it
eats appear only
at night, so it
sleeps in a hole
in a tree until
night falls.
