Bonechewers are the reason that the Skaven have no need to worry about burying their dead. These five-foot-long mole-like rodents feed on bones, and they find plenty available around Skaven cities and settlements. They are entirely sightless, but their heightened sense of smell leads them unerringly to fresh corpses where they use their huge saw-like incisors to devour the entire skeleton. They have little taste for the living, but fight ferociously if their breeding areas are invaded or food supply threatened. Occasionally, a clutch of these beasts find their way into a Human graveyard, and many an adventurer has earned some coin from the Priest of Morr by driving the beasts back to their usual diet.[1a]
