Location and Uses

Fi's Commenthide ▲
Fi says:

Species name: Lanayru Ant
Sensitivity to human presence: 60%
Usable as a potion ingredient.

I project a 50% probability of failing to notice this insect simply because it's small. After discovering its location, you can catch it comparatively easily.

Lanayru Ants can be found in Lanayru Desert and can be captured using the Bug Net. Lanayru Ants can be used to upgrade Potions at the Potion Shop or sold to Strich at the Knight Academy at night. They build and live in underground nests where they store water to thrive in the desert's heat.[1][4]
