Cut through the Spottle

 

Spottle 600x504

The spottle-toothed skelk has red canines which it wears down through chewing on a particularly hard tuber found in rocky areas. Fortunately, nature has provided a way to replace these teeth and every three lunar cycles the spottle-toothed skelk grows a new set of canines. The old canines, usually worn down to nubs, fall out and join the other detritus of the skelk. Hence, spottle has become a term to indicate something useless, of no value, or garbage.
