As you might guess from their short-stubby wings, the adults are flightless ground-dwellers. With their comically bloated abdomens, it would be amazing if they were able to get off the ground even if they had larger wings. If handled and squeezed, they employ a chemical defense that will blister your skin …so better to observe and not touch.
