Appearance in Pikmin 3, tropical variant.
Scientific name Pseudoarachnia capillum
Family Arachnorb

The Shaggy Long Legs is an arachnorb that has masses of long, shaggy hair covering several parts of its body. Its color scheme depends on the climate it dwells in; its tropical variant is black and purple and its arctic variant is black and white. This species of arachnorb does not stop to rest but does stop to shake off Pikmin, which can climb the Shaggy Long Legs' legs and pluck its hairs to open it to attack. It strongly resembles a Baldy Long Legs after being stripped of its hair.

In Pikmin 3 Deluxe, a golden variant of the Shaggy Long Legs is fought alongside a golden Baldy Long Legs in the final stage of Olimar's Comeback. It behaves identically to the normal variety, with the only differences being its coloration and its much wider feet.

Attacks Crushes Pikmin

The Shaggy Long Legs is an arachnorb appearing as the boss of the Arctic Territory in Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs. Initially concealed beneath the snow in its arena, it reveals itself by lifting its legs out of the ground and then pulling the rest of itself up using them, then shaking its body free of the snow that collected on it. As it stomps about ceaselessly, the creature may employ an attack wherein it jumps out of view and attempts to land on Captain Olimar and Pikmin. This is deadly, particularly to Pikmin underneath of its feet, as they will be crushed, and knock away those beside its feet a fair distance, but is not without consequences; upon landing, the Shaggy Long Legs' legs will become embedded in the snow up to its lower joints, temporarily immobilizing the creature and opening it to attack while it struggles to free itself. Upon doing so, it suddenly leaps out of the ground, knocking back every Pikmin nearby and crushing any Pikmin its feet land on. Having Pikmin climb its legs and remove its hairs is the only way to harm it, and after taking enough damage, the Shaggy Long Legs will rampage by stomping its feet at a rapid pace for some moments before calming. Upon defeat, it convulses before plunging its body into the ground, its partially-buried legs protruding into the air and its body irrecoverable.
