|First game||Pikmin 1|
Female Sheargrubs are one of the weakest enemies in the Pikmin Series. They are apart of the Mandiblard Family. The female sheargrub can't harm pikmin in any way, while the male kills pikmin. These are in Pikmin 1 and Pikmin 2. The Males are also a little darker than the females. Sheargrubs can eat bridges that pikmin make, making them annoying.
"Males of this species are purple and have an armored head."
"The males of this species are purple and black creatures with tapered mouths, while the females are lighter in color and lack an armored exoskeleton. As with most mandiblards, these creatures have regressed to the point where they have lost both legs and wings. They can be seen crawling around on the ground and are believed to feed on the vegetable extracts from the congealed fluids of expired Pikmin."
"For an unforgettable quiche, slice this creature up and mix with four eggs, two vine-ripened tomatoes, diced zucchini, and generous handfuls of feta and swiss. Bake until crusty and golden. This beast is most flavorful if caught and cooked just after laying its eggs."
Note that there is only one entry for both male and female.
"Today I've learned something new about these creatures' behavioral patterns. They are very vexing bugs-they chew apart the bridges that the Pikmin built! All the effort the Pikmin went to... I must watch for these pests."
