Appearance in Pikmin 3.
Scientific name Himeagea mandibulosa
Family Mandiblard

Female Sheargrubs are mandiblards that, unlike the members of the opposing gender, are scavengers. They do not attack leaders or Pikmin, although they still chase them. As with Male Sheargrubs, however, they chew apart stick bridges, stopping only if they are confronted or reduce the bridge to the bundle it was initially found as.

Female Sheargrubs return in Pikmin 251 and are slightly faster than they were in Pikmin 2.

Notes

Olimar's observations

These little pests do little to actually hurt Pikmin. Despite that, they can move around quite quickly and be a real pain to defeat. Not that there's even much to gain from killing them. Why do we even bother with these things again?

Cookin' with Louie

These small creatures are the perfect size for one of them to make a good sized meal for one person. Add some salad to go with it and you can please even the pickiest eaters!

Notes

Tike's notes

These creatures have a thing for birth rates. Although according to my analysis, they give birth to males a lot more often than females. I wonder why this is the case? Despite the facts, it seems that females have a larger life span than males. I actually believe that the white color is from aging. I checked and every male is mainly younger. Ermm who knows?

Alice's notes

What delicate and polite creatures. Though they love to eat wood. Actually, in truth, they only eat wood. I know I'm picky, but come on they're plenty of soft food to eat... wait they can chow wood, but... Never mind. They tend to keep very friendly intentions with the males, but I do wish the males... you know... could give the females more respect.

Captain Pikmin's notes

I actually feel bad for killing these helpless creatures... they sadly are that easy to take down.

In Pikmin Forever, Female Sheargrubs usually appear alongside the Male Sheargrub. Female sheargrubs are graphically and behaviorally advanced. It gives off a very dim, pinkish glow in dark areas. Although they are unable to harm Pikmin, they will seek out nearby nectar to sip up. In fact, early in the day, Female Sheargrubs may be witnessed roaming the area in search of naturally-occurring nectar near nectar weeds and other vegetation. They can be brought above ground forcefully by a Purple Pikmin if they are thrown onto the spot where they reside. They can only burrow in soft places like dirt. If killed, they will drop zero to two small droplets of nectar, which flower two Pikmin each.

Notes

Olimar's notes

This is the female of a species that prey on Pikmin. Only males have the nutrients to develop a harder jaw, so the females' squishy mandibles don't help it kill Pikmin.

Ship's notes

Hmmm... I wonder what it would be like to be a female sheargrub: "HAHA! DIE PIKMIN!" Squish... squish... squish... "WHY WON'T YOU DIE?!? HAAAAAAAAAAAACKS!!!

Female Sheargrubs in Pikmin: Dimensional Breach appear alongside their male, winged, and swarming relatives. They are still unable to harm Pikmin, but they will deconstruct stick bridges and climbing sticks. After obtaining his special upgrade, Louie can control them and use them to build the very things they exist to destroy.

Notes

Sagittarius' notes

The female and male sheargrubs should be kept together at any cost. Males will feed the females over time, so don't worry. Sheargrubs should be placed in a glass tank, not unlike an ant farm, where one can see the distinctive network of subterranean tunnels that these creatures dig out.

Libra's notes

Meh. Nothing much to speak of. The color does make for good shoulder pads for snowboarders, but that's about all I can think of.

Charlie's notes

They aren't hostile at all and go down with one Pikmin. I recommend only destroying them if they try to chew on a bridge or you need a Pikmin boost.

Derrick's notes

The perfect test subjects for my experiments, Female sheargrubs don't fight back, can't flee through a steel floor, and are completely helpless against my tests without their mates to back them up.

Notes

Olimar's notes

I previously thought that red bulborbs and their dwarf equivalent were the most common creatures on PNF-404, but female sheargrubs have shown themselves to own that title. They inhabit every reach of the planet, but fortunately, they are harmless to me and my Pikmin. They don't have any defense mechanism against any predators except for burrowing underground. The lifespan of a female sheargrub is very short, making finding a mate with which to reproduce essential.

Louie's notes

After birth, these creatures have a delightful flavor and are easy to devour. Making a quiche is the best way to cook them.
