How to Kill
Swarming it is a suitable method, usually with 60-100 pikmin if you feel uneasy, as the hard shell protects it from all pikmin attacks, leaving only the face vunerable, but usually, the pikmin will revert from the shell to the face.
Try using both captains and repeatedly keep punching it's face, but try to keep both away from the middle where they are at rick of damage. Most often, when 1/6 of it's health is gone during it's attack phrase, instead of the harpoon being released, it will attempt to defend itself (shaking). After defending, it will reattempt the attack phase. Rinse. Repeat.
At first I thought this thing was harmless untill it made a pikibob with it's nose... O_o Nin10dude
I once discovered a Burrow-nit Eating A Bridge and i said "Weird, i thought there were only 3 mandiblards." i would call that a 'Burrow-nit sheargrub'. I'm RedpikminFlamethrower And I approve this message.

So uh... When re-watching the trailer on the Pikmin 3 website, does anyone else think that one enemy is a redesign of the Cloaking Burrow-nit? And it may have a flying relative now? I know it's just speculation for now, but does anyone else notice the similarities? PokeminMaster, Master of Pokémon and Pikmin (Talk to me Here) 10:29, June 8, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, the Kaburimushi (its Japanese name. English name isn't revealed) is the thing you're talking about. Someone checked the Japanese name for the cloaking Burrow-nit and it turns out it has a ONE letter difference. The "K" is an "H" or something. so, for now, we're keeping them in separate pages. but if it needs modifying when the English name is revealed, we will. (check the
[[Talk:Kaburimushi|Talk page for Kaburimushi ]] for the full story). StuperStar (talk) 13:58, June 8, 2013 (UTC)
Oh, maybe it'll be a variation? Kinda like Dwarf Red Bulborb to Red Bulborb (I know they're completely different species)... As in, maybe the new one is like a miniature version/close cousin genetically, with less HP? PokeminMaster, Master of Pokémon and Pikmin (Talk to me Here) 13:59, June 8, 2013 (UTC)
