Lucky Slime - Oooh shiny! (not where to find them)[edit | edit source]
Lucky Slimes are strange a variant of Tabby Slimes that seem to have a fascination with shiny objects, particularly newbuck coins. A Lucky Slime gobbles up any coin it can find, giving it a distinct jingling sound as they move about. However, coins don't make for a balanced diet and a Lucky Slime will still greedily devour meat of any kind. In doing so, its body bursts into a shower of newbucks, having little room in its slimy tummy. This burst often sends the lucky slime flying into the air.
Upon detecting a rancher, the Lucky Slime will make a hasty retreat. No known rancher has ever been skillful, or perhaps lucky enough, to capture one of these slippery slimes." Excerpt from Lucky Slimes in Slime Rancher
The Lucky Slime, as stated above cannot be captured and will disappear in about 5-10 seconds after being discovered. They are as rare as a Golden Slime, possibly even more so.
Feeding them meat sends them in the air, giving you about 40-100 newbucks. Not a large amount but you can say you found one.
