Scrummuncher

Scrummunchers were necrophagous beetle-like creatures found throughout Thra. A swarm of Scrummunchers could reduce a corpse to bones in a matter of hours, and their droppings returned nutrients to the soil. Scrummunchers were collected by the Skeksis to use during grooming rituals, with the beetles feeding on the necrotic flesh present on their masters' extremities.[1]
