Gridit

Captive Gridit in the Chamber of Life

Gridits were solitary amphibians related to Riddits, native to the Endless Forest and Sog. Highly adaptable, they were equally at home near streams and tall grass copses. They were characterized by their rubbery skin, cartilaginous skeletons and suction cupped limbs, which allowed them to fasten to smooth rocks when hunting in riverbeds.[1]

Gridits needed moisture to survive, and were often found sleeping in puddles soaking up the water in their pores. During droughts, Gridits would enter a state of suspended animation after expelling all liquid from their bodies, waiting for the rains to revive them again.[1]
