Gelle eggs require a wet, luscious environment to hatch in. They are often mistaken for beds of flower on the forest floor.
Upon hatching, Gelle beetles live in crevices of tree bark in the dense forests of Ark. They are frequently eaten by small rodents like squirrels that live in the trees but Gelles reproduce quickly. Unlike most beetles, Gelles live in harmony with trees and do not destroy, infect, or devour them. They are not pests nor an invasive species.
Gelles are called "moving flowers" as they walk across the limbs and branches of trees. Have you ever seen an evergreen tree with flowers? Those are Gelles.
