The Fuchsia Wort Beetle was a creature native to the Swamp of Sog. They rub their hind legs together to produce a soothing sound that can be heard throughout the wetlands of Sog.[1] Childlings are often tasked with catching these beetles and bringing them back to Great Smerth, so that it can be prepared by Drenchen cooks as a food dish.[2] Body parts of the beetle can also be fermented and made into wines.
