The Aardborb, despite the name, is a species of Breadbug found in Pikmin Z.
- Diet: Carnivore: Small Pikmin, Female Sheargrubs
- Predators: Bulborbs/Bulbears (Whiptongue Bulborb excluded), Burrowing Snagret, Megamouth Terratoad
Aardborbs hold a almost perfect resemblence to the Whiptongue Bulborb, the main difference being the smaller size when compared, and the lack of a whip-like tongue. Much like other Dwarf Bulborbs, it is often found in areas where the creatures it mimics are also found, with the soul exception of the Giant's Playground. It is a active hunter, and will go after a group of Pikmin, or some Sheargrubs if they move within its radius.
Another example of evolutionary mimicry is presented with the Aardborb. It seems that wherever there is a Bulborb variant, there's gonna be a Dwarf Bulborb species not too far behind.
Like many other Dwarf Bulborbs, Aardborbs can be easily defeated by either swarming or throwing a Pikmin on top of it. They are less dangerous than other Dwarf Bulborbs, as they can only eat one Pikmin at a time due to its small mouth.
