- "There's a colony of living, eating sand all along the shoreline…"
- ―Tinian I'att describes the coastlines of Lomabu III
Sand was a creature native to the mostly aquatic world of Lomabu III that colonized the planet's shorelines like its inorganic namesake. Crossing an area of the living sand was impossible on foot without a being becoming its next meal, as the near microscopic creatures were capable of eating through nearly any substance almost instantaneously. In this manner, it was much like carnivorous mold.
