Rethip

A six-legged beast with large tusks that burrows into the sands. Its eyes sit on stalks atop its head so it can peer out of the sands, everything else being completely covered.

When its prey comes near it leaps out and gores them with its tusks and gnaws on the bodies. It also often chases away smaller predators and takes their carrion.

Snetch

The snetch is a furry beast which grows up to three feet long in extreme cases. It feeds upon adders and skelk, and is apparently immune to the adder’s poison. For this reason, it is considered good luck to see a snetch, for they help clear the area of poisonous snakes.

However, their pelts are also useful and utilized for clothing and blankets. The snetch are not generally dangerous to humans.
