The Pudge Grub is perhaps the epitome of the domesticated animal; it is dull, defenseless, unsuited for life in the wild and oddly useful. About the size of a ripe watermelon with all the swiftness of a lethargic tortoise, the Pudge has the following notable properties. The creatures reproduce through asexual division, with their only real variance being color.

- If nudged or urged in a direction, they will plod that way unless forced to stop or prodded to go another way
- They are soft and brightly colored, making them obvious and near irresistible to carnivorous creatures
- Easy and cheap to feed, as they are able to consume prepared rations or local flora
- Can be butchered with ease, and will yield three days worth of highly nutritious rations in the process
- Oddly resistant to blunt force trauma, meaning they can be stashed away rather easily.
- Generally noiseless, save for the marshmallow like squish sound made while moving
Theories on the Pudge Grub's origins are numerous, ranging from "Favored species of a fluffy Godling" to "Wizards did it."
