Found In Garden
Poison Vaults

1 King Nutmidgeling

Nutmidge is a unique monster found in Garden biomes, as well as in poison Ancient Vaults. Its primary attack is to tuck its "head" inside its shell and charge blindly toward players until it is stopped by an obstacle. After breaking its shell the monster will split into two Nutmidgelings and a King Nutmidgeling. It drops nothing apart from these enemies regardless of the method used to kill it, so it is unable to drop its own figurine.

This monster has a weakness (+50% damage taken) to Fire damage and a resistance (-50% damage taken) to Electric damage. Additionally, it cannot be inflicted with Electrified.

Rare Form

A rare elemental variant of this monster can be found on bounty missions, and has a very small chance to appear in the wild. It has an identical drop pool, base stats, and spawn area, but applies the poisoned status effect when touched. When this variant is killed, it releases a poisonous explosion on death as well as the three nutmidges the normal variant releases.

This form can also be captured, and when caught will complete an entry in the Rare Pets collection.
