Parasects are totally blind. living in such dark enviornments meant that parasect had to learn how to survive without vision. Therfore is sense of smell and touch have been highned tenfold and can easily dectect when an intruder or enemy are coming. Also as it is blind the spores from the now enormous mushroom on its back are now very potant and can knock out somthing three times its size.
They eat fungus and insects that they find on the walls of caves and communicate through pheromones that they release from their shroom.
