The Gear Bug is the fifth pillbug in the game. It can be found in the stampede when the player upgrades their pillbug habitat to level 2 or higher.
The Gear Bug is completely coloured a lustrous gold, excluding its eyes, with textures which mimic metal reflecting and warping light. On its back it can be seen to be serrated horizontally, unlike other pillbugs. When angry it gives the appearance of a golden gear.
This bug can really grind your gears.

Note: Its chance of appearing is low due to it being a tier 4 animal. It will appear randomly but not often, and never before 1200m.
Baby Gear Bug Edit
- The Gear Bug's name is a portmanteau of "gear" and "bug", which, like other pillbugs, defines its appearance when angry.
- The description plays on this by referencing the well-known idiom " ", meaning to annoy someone.
- The Gear Bug was released in version 1.15.0 on the 22nd of March 2018 along with Garden and the first five Garden species.
