Description: Brain Bugs are the smartest of the Arachnids, peace-loving aliens that counter attacked the Earth in Buenos Aries (Argentina) of all places in 1997. It is believed that Brain Bugs coordinate Bug attacks; they also gather intelligence from human enemy combatants by inserting a mandible probe into their squishy brain. These creatures are slow and ponderous, so they are often carried from place to place by Chariot Bugs.
