Armored bub

Armored bub breaking from captivity in the Chamber of Life

Armored Bubs were mammals native to the Crystal Desert, notable for their outer shells and distinct "bub, bub, bub" call. They were among the few natural predators of the Peeper beetle. As such, these animals were revered by the Dousan Clan for keeping Peeper numbers low.[1]

At least one specimen was kept in the Chamber of Life, where it broke from captivity and took part in killing skekTek and releasing Kira from the Draining Chair.[2]
