Fire Manelants exhibit remarkably different behaviors from their siblings of other elements. Other Manelants will attempt to lure their prey with as little movement as possible, while fire Manelants are much more active predators.
Manettas strut using two of their sturdy roots, seeking any food they can get their branches on. They often pound trees to make their fruit fall, then collect the fruit in their pouches, together with any ill-fated insects that happen to catch their eye.
Precautions to take when raising a fire Manetera indoors:
1. Do not place fragile objects in high places.
-The Manetera will reach for the object out of curiosity, knocking it down more often than not.
2. Always keep a mop handy.
-Maneteras regularly spit out fluids that will atract insects if not cleaned up immediately.
3. Only raise one at a time.
-Maneteras do not play well with others, and will fight over food and almost everything else. As such, raising more than one at a time is not recommended.
Manelants are similar to plants in their overall appearance and behaviors, which makes them easy to raise at home. Water Manelants are especially popular for their childlike innocence.
Water Manettas enjoy sitting beside a river or lake and resting their root-feet in the water. They are generally calm and docile, but get very angry when someone puts trash or other things they can't digest in their pouch.
This Astromon in slow, sluggish, and hates moving. It doesn't watch where it's stepping, either, so care must be taken to keep it from tripping over something and spilling stomach acid all over.
A Manelant's digestive acid has a surprisingly sweet scent, which it uses to attract bugs. When approached by an enemy, it will secrete acid onto the ground, making it sticky and difficult to move. The real terror come, though, when a swarm of insects rushes toward the acid puddle and whatever is trapped in it.
An infant Manetta's acidity level is relatively low, but as it grows older, its acid becomes a potent and viable defense mechanism. Enemies who aren't deterred by the acid are met by a barrage of attacks from the Manetta's branches, which it uses as whips.
A Manelant's fully matured form. It positions itself in one place and feeds on insects that come close. The fruit on the end of its branches act as hands that can grab objects. They can also pack quite a punch
