Reel Notes[edit]

This forager stores undigested pellets in its stomach for winter.

Olimar's Notes[edit]

Flint beetles are nocturnal, choosing to hide in the grass by day and stay active at night. These creatures keep undigested food pellets in their stomachs to sustain them through the winter, but given the right stimulus they will spit them out. Recent research has revealed that these pellets are enveloped in a membrane that seals and preserves them in a sterile, airtight environment. If kept at room temperature, it seems that this pellet membrane will keep its contents fresh for up to six months. The membrane may be made from he same substance that gives the exoskeleton of the flint beetle its beautiful sheen.

Louie's Notes[edit]

An essential flavor-accenting ingredient in gumbo and jambalaya. Also delicious in soups, broths and marinades.
