Moonmites are large bug-like, green, egg-shaped monsters found in the Moon Desert. They have four red eyes and can spit a corrosive green substance. Moonmites eat metal, with their younglings being particularly fond of gold.
Moonmites were a plague to the gold-based Moonlander civilization until Della Duck helped them figure out why the Moonmites kept attacking them. The Moonlanders resolved to share their supply of gold with the Moonmites, allowing them to live in peace.
