The Sand Snipes are tiny insect-like Rahi.
The Sand Snipe species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.
A population of Sand Snipes made their home in the arid district of Po-Metru on Metru Nui.
After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, the surviving Sand Snipes left the Matoran Universe and immigrated to Spherus Magna.
Abilities and Traits
Sand Snipes are a pest to the Matoran because they often burrow underneath Matoran armor and bite the organic tissue beneath. They are easily trapped: accustomed to barren regions, they are captivated by the sight of Liquid Protodermis, and sometimes dive into a puddle of it and drown in an instant. This odd behavior led to the Matoran expression "foolish as a Sand Snipe."
