Nebrie were large amphibious creatures that inhabited the swampy regions of Thra. The Podlings domesticated Nebrie for collecting milk and used their skin to make drums, while the patches of fur around their faces and ears would be fashioned into clothes for the little Podlings.[1] 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.[2] The Skeksis considered Roast Nebrie to be a great delicacy, often slaughtering the animal for their daily banquets.[3]
