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 are able to break down small rocks that the dirt grinder encounters.
The teeth of the dirt grinder are harvested for some people who sell them as a novelty item.
