This common living disposal unit can maneuver well on its arms and hands, but may remain in place for years at a time, hibernating in its metallic, chitiny shell until needed. Lacking a true stomach or digestive tract, it digests food directly in its wide mouth, rapidly breaking down even plastics and metals in its salivary enzymes and excreting only an oily brown smog from its cranial pores. Storing excess garbage in its shell to "ripen," it may also chew large handfuls into acidic wads to hurl at attackers.
In the great Garbage Sea, Litterthug may congregate and bury themselves, feeding on the surrounding filth like mussels on an actual seabed.
