The Whiskerpillar is a type of herbivorous, grub-like creature only recently discovered on PNF-404.

Appearance Edit

Whiskerpillars hold a resemblance to caterpillars or grubs, with a yellow three-segmented body, and a large orange head. Its mouth is covered in brittle whiskers, hence the creature's name.

Behavior Edit

Whiskerpillars aren't notably dangerous towards other creatures, many explorers noting the creatures "seemingly ignoring them" as they look for food. They are usually found in pairs when in these foraging parties, looking namely for berries and fruits to eat.

Notes Edit

  • Whiskerpillars are one of the few animals that are hunted by Pikmin as food. The only other animal known from this is the Breadbug.
  • Explorers say that the Whiskerpillar is the larval stage to another creature, but no "adult" Whiskerpillar has ever been reportedly found yet.
