Brigard Fact #46

There is a type of beetle that lives primarily in timestone mines. The miners have named the insects ‘dusters’ for the large cloud of shimmering powder they emit when startled. Dusters are slightly smaller than an adult’s palm and have a hard, copper-coloured shell with a single bright green stripe. When inhaled, the cloud of dust causes dizziness and sometimes unconsciousness in humans. Animists seem more sensitive than most others.
