Nebries were large, oviparous, grub-like amphibious creatures that inhabited the swamp and wetland regions of Skarith. They were herbivores that fed mainly on algae and decomposing plant matter. Nebries never stopped eating, and continued growing throughout their lives.[1]

The Podlings domesticated Nebrie for their dairy products and used their skin to make drums, while the patches of fur around their faces and ears would be fashioned into clothes for their children.[2] Members of the Order of Lesser Service would help raise baby Nebrie, whose teeth had yet to grow, by chewing food and spitting it in their mouths.[3] The Skeksis considered Roast Nebrie to be a great delicacy, often slaughtering the animal for their daily banquets.[4] The Sifa Clan frequently shipped Nebrie eggs.[5]

To be likened to a Nebrie held multiple connotations, indicating both someone methodical and easygoing, or just slow.[1] The term "flat-footed Nebrie" indicated someone unable to win races,[6] while being liked to a "happy Nebrie" meant someone who was as happy as could be.[1]
