"It may look like a leaf, but this critter is just using camouflage to trick its prey."
Pikmin 3 Prima Guide
"Like the standard Skitter Leaf, the Desiccated Skitter Leaf uses its leaf-shaped body to blend into the environment. However, this enemy not only utilizes much better camouflage, it uses its spiked forelegs to slice through any Pikmin it manages to capture.
When you spot a Desiccated Skitter Leaf, toss a single Pikmin on its back to defeat the creature before it manages to attack. Each time you reach a patch of brown leaves, take a moment to search for any enemies that may be hiding within it."
Although they are agile, Desiccated Skitter Leaves are extremely frail, and will die instantly if a Pikmin is thrown on top of one. These creatures can snatch and eat Pikmin quickly, so if one is on the attack, caution must be taken. If one does manage to grab a Pikmin, it must be defeated quickly. Desiccated Skitter Leaves are hard to identify due to camouflage, but using your cursor will make them glow and allowing you to take it down.
