Crawlies are creatures native to Thra and found in the Grot. They were the Skeksis' favorite dessert, as well as common vermin in the Castle.[1]

Biology[]

Crawlies are small animals of very basic morphology with a furry, roughly spherical core, and two feather-like appendages on their sides. They do not have a discernible head, mouth or eyes, and it is unknown how they perceive their surroundings or feed, if at all. Despite lacking any orifices, they are shown to vocalize small squeaking noises. Their primary means of locomotion is rolling around, seemingly using their "feathers" to maintain stability.
