Definition – ‘Gribbles’
A race of uncoordinated gangly creatures who habitually consume large amounts of a mild poison, known as ‘grog’, on days ending with a Y. A Gribble in their natural environment (zero gravity) is a graceful creature, a Gribble ‘swims’ through the environment, using its underdeveloped limbs as steering apparatus, much like a seahorse in the ocean.
When out of its natural environment a Gribble can often be found in a heap with limbs tangled and in a general state of disarray, it’s usual propulsion system ineffective in an environment with a gravitational pull.
Despite the obvious drawbacks of the Gribbles physical state it can be a fierce predator when provoked, with flailing limbs and a look of determination a Gribble can inflict serious damage to small prey such as field mice and lady bugs.
The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy classified the Gribble as ‘mostly harmless’.
