Bright and colorful just like its surroundings, The Gniffer is a harmless little critter seen fluttering about the Azure Weald. Curious and friendly, don't be surprised if one or two fly by to say hello.
— Miner's Manual Description
The Hexawing Gniffer is a completely passive flying creature found exclusively in Azure Weald. It will be found wandering with no apparent purpose, and attempts to stay clear of other creatures.
You can pet a nearby gniffer by pressing the [USE] ("E" by default) key.
The Hexawing Gniffer has behavior similar to the Fester Flea; it will aimlessly fly around the cave, but when approached by a player, it will fly away from the player. It will then resume its normal aimless flight.
