The Caustic Dweevil is a species of Dweevil from Pikmin 2 that sprays body fluid onto your Pikmin when it feels threatened, drowning all types but Blue. Like other dweevils, it will sometimes carry objects on its back for safety.
 Olimar's Notes
"The Caustic Dweevil is one member of an insect family known for mimicking objects by carrying them on their backs. Several points of differentiation with other members of the species have been confirmed, such as body color and behavioral patterns, but none of these suggest major deviations in the creature's genetic structure. This makes it clear that it is a relative of the family. When attacked by enemies, the Caustic Dweevil spits out bodily fluids in response. Space suits corrode and oxidize when they come into contact with this highly acidic liquid."
 Louie's Notes
"Inedible. Effects of consumption include uncontrollable arm flailing and enthusiastic dishwashing."
