Revised 3rd edition creature: rock worm
Rock worms are subterranean dwellers. They are about 40 feet long, 5 feet in diameter, and weigh about 50 tons. They look like regular earthworms although they are exorbitantly larger and have an extremely tough hide composed from rock and calloused flesh, which covers them entirely. Rock worms can burrow through stone, but they are normally found in areas consisting of softer soils such as desert, beach sands, or grassland dirt.
These creatures are sometimes carnivorous. Therefore they can be found burrowing and creating tunnel-networks around civilizations, destroying the built environments' support and making their eradication necessary. The problem for surface-dwellers is increased by the issue that, when they feel threatened, rock worms may create minor earthquakes around themselves, knocking down some buildings and damaging others.
