Glides elegantly along the surface of calm bodies of water searching for smaller bugs. Fish are occasionally attracted to these.

— The Bestiary

The Water Strider is a harmless critter that spawns on bodies of water on the surface except in the Ocean. Due to having only 5 health and no defense, they are often killed instantly by enemies or players. Gold Water Striders have a 1/150 (0.67%) chance to spawn in place of the regular variant.

It can be caught with any Bug Net to be carried in the inventory and released later, or crafted into a Water Strider Cage to be used as decorative furniture. Once crafted, the caged water strider cannot be released again, and when placed it moves around inside the cage as it would outside.
