Similarly to most Orr Kids, it can hear quite well. The Bombus’ primary mechanism of defense is its nettle-like urticating hairs hidden within a sparse fur coat. These bristles may be ejected if it feels threatened. It also has a beetle-like carapace covering most of its body. Its most unique feature is its face, which is quite literally all ‘mouth’. It can open its powerful jaws as wide as it is long, food ingested directly into its stomach. Its taste and smell receptors are found on the tips of its lower jaw and downward-facing antennae (which appear to stem from its eye sockets). Its bulbous eyes, typically yellow or red, are specialized for low-light vision.
