Black Slime Scuttlers are creatures covered in Black Slime. To destroy them, they have to be covered by the slime from your Proton Pack and then you shoot them with your stream. For strategy on defeating him, go to Lost Island Rising Level (stylized version).

As a corollary to my entry on ectozoophilic mimicry, I'd like to add that there are indeed some semi-formed spirits that have a go at making a form for themselves without relying on preconceived archetypes. The result is usually relatively grotesque but intriguing in its randomness. Oftentimes a sort of evolutionary process occurs with the creature, wherein it creates appendages and orifices as needed.
These entities tend to combine their anatomic structures in seemingly counterintuitive ways, but the resultant ectophysiological gestalt works in concert with terrifying efficiency. There also seems to be no limit to their size when negatively charged ectoplasm is abundant in the area. The only thing that can harm them is positively charged slime.
These are like the ghostly version of cockroaches: highly annoying and entirely disgusting! Use the Slime Blower to remove their Black Slime so you can burn them away, but be careful, they tend to get feisty when denied their protective slime coat.
