Snickets in a swarm

Snickets were carnivorous flying creatures, related to ratbirds, with long pointed noses and stubby triangular wings. Despite their minute stature, they flew in swarms when hungry and could strip their prey down to the bone within seconds. They were discovered and named by Rook, who witnessed them devour both a pack of skulltrogs and a logworm during the events of The Last of the Sky Pirates (See Errors and Inconsistencies in the Edge Chronicles).
