In the middle of the desert of Trod are monsters related to Cupboard Claws, called Sand Claws. In the past there was thought to be only one of them in existence, and it was considered legendary. Now there's known to be multiple Sand Claws under the desert, but how many isn't known. It is a giant, wrinkly hand, on the end of a long arm. It stays underground until it senses vibrations through the ground. When it senses the prey is close enough, it reaches out of its burrow and grabs them with great speed. It drags the prey underground and holds them tight. It slowly absorbs the prey with juices from its palm.
