The chillbug is a monster added in UnNetHack that is normally generated only in the Sheol branch. When not currently attacking, chillbugs regenerate health very quickly.

Chillbugs also appear in Slash'EM Extended, where they have a single 6d5 cold bite attack and can randomly appear anywhere.

Strategy

Chillbugs can hit moderately hard, but by the time you reach Sheol they should be manageable. Just try not to get surrounded by the groups that they generate in.

Encyclopedia entry

Chillbugs are insects that are native residents of Sheol.
They are said to be composed of liquid ice. Their ability to
quickly regenerate has puzzled many humans and non-humans
alike.

Chillbugs are cool.
