Da'altin (also known as minemoles) are burrowing animals native to Daenor.
Roughly the size of boars, they are black, furred, and nearly blind. Their front paws, which are tipped with sharp claws, are massive in proportion to their bodies, together comprising about half the animals' mass. They use these claws for burrowing deep into the ground. Their tapered heads are eyeless, their noses are long and pink and whiskered, and sharp teeth fill their mouths.
The Daenorians have harnessed the da'altin for digging gemstone mines, notably in the land of Eetek.
Da'altins, which are carnivorous, are known for their aggression. At the scent of blood, they go into a feeding frenzy similar to sharks.
