The Mites are the smallest alien creatures in the Galactic Rangers series. Though small in size, the Mites can pack quite a punch. Their intended use is to quickly burrow through the ground, and then surprise their enemy from below. That's not all though. If they get the jump on you, they'll latch onto you and then self destruct, leaving quite a lasting impression. It's like how the old saying goes, big things come in small packages.
