Thanks for all the tips and advice guys.
I'm not really trying to breed them, since I don't have the room, but if any do get born, I'll give them away.

Or does aggressiveness have...

If it's pellet soil, don't worry about them uprooting plants.
Like I said, with flora max they try to burrow, but only go half way through their shell.
