The Bithinian Dirt Grinder was a surprise to the early colonists of Bithinia when they found that their farmlands were being destroyed from underground. A larger version of the Terran earthworm, the dirt grinder spends most of its time burrowing through the land being able to break the soil down into smaller compounds at a rate of a meter per hour. Its mouth also has teeth that is able to break down small rocks that the dirt grinder encounters.[2]


The teeth of the dirt grinder are harvested for some people who sell them as a novelty item.[2]
