When coming near it, it will hide underground. They will remain hidden until the player turns their back and walks away, in which case it'll take a peek for safety. If it's safe, it will relocate closer to the player's position, and if close enough it will attack the player with a pounce attack. If the player turns around during the peek or reposition, it will panic and run away from the player, going back to hiding. They can also be pushed out of hiding if they are either forcefully pulled out of the earth, or burnt with a pyro attack. The Dendro Slime will be ignited for large amounts of damage when entering contact with pyro aura. Once out of the ground, it will act like a normal slime, distancing it's self in order to attack the player with pounce attack.
