A type of bush with teardrop shaped leaves. As a means of protection foxfire is covered in a special type of pollen that, when brought in contact with heat, gives off light and is difficult to wash off. During the day this plant is known to glitter in sunlight, but can be difficult to spot at night. Watch out coming in contact! The pollen reacts to body heat, and at night gives off a dramatically bright yellow glow that can easily be seen for long distances, making the unfortunate victim an easy target for predators.

Foxfire is generally harmless, however some individuals may experience rashes from its pollen.
