Buffalo Beetles are giant, insectoid creatures that resemble scorpions more than beetles. They are found only in Munitions Forge and serve as mounts for the Apes, appearing in The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning.

The Buffalo Beetles attack by using either their pincers, tails, or by firing streams of fire from their stingers. Although they are resistant against Fire, they are very weak against Earth and Ice.
