Squiddleitch

Squiddleitch at a Skeksis banquet

Squiddleitch were hexapodal invertebrates native to Sog. They were omnivores who attached themselves to stones or fallen logs, and primarily fed on fish, though supplemented their diet with lichen and algae.[1]

They were generally harmless unless attacked, in which case they would lash out at their attacker with their tentacles with enough force to dislocate an arm.[1]

The Drenchen nearly hunted the Squiddleitch to extinction, as the invertebrates were prized by the Skeksis, who ate them fried and demanded them as part of the Drenchen's tithes.[1]
