- "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.
