Like the Sniffets (see earlier posts), these have been documented to come in 5 main colors/flavors but the last - 'Chocolate Supreme' is so rare it is almost mythical!
- Rhubarb Puff - red, with a well rounded belly that is mainly air (sucks up too much gas)
- Pink Blamange - pink, often wears a bow.
- Chicken Korma - dark yellow, can be quite spicy.
- Mushy Pea - green, blends well into surroundings.
- Chocolate Supreme - Brown, rich and velvety - very highly prized!
These Heli-bugs are the main source of food for the Gulpalump. They entice the Heli-bug down onto its 'platform', which looks like a flower. Once they are in the 'critical red zone' they are Gulped down into its belly. Often an Heli-bug has escaped to tell the tale* and become a Hero much celebrated by its kind!
*usually the Gulpalump has fallen asleep and failed to notice when the Heli-bug landed.
