The Prospector Bug is an item from Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland. One of the thirty Rupee Goods in the game, the Prospector Bug is found within the Insect Cavern. To obtain it, Tingle must have a large bodyguard who can remove a boulder blocking the path leading to the collectible.
The description of the Prospector Bug states that this species is fabled to collect gold from river beds and turn it into gold balls (similar to dung beetles) but this may just be a myth, as it looks like a normal, dirty bug.
