Description: Brain Bugs are the smartest of the Arachnids, peaceful 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. Brain Bugs are slow and ponderous, so they are often carried from place to place by Chariot Bugs.
