Sand-Dwellers resemble emaciated, sand-encrusted humans with abnormally large eyes and ears, and faces that look somewhat like those of koala bears. They dwell in caves during the daylight hours, and emerge at night in groups to hunt. Their dietary habits are unknown, but investigators should be cautious when dealing with them. In at least one case they were associated with a very large tentacled creature of unknown nature and habits.
It is unclear whether they live on this world or another, since the journals of Wilbur Akeley, which provide most of what is known about Sand-Dwellers, are based on observation through the Glass from Leng. Their habitat was described by Akeley as resembling the deserts of the American Southwest.
