The knuckle worm is one of the two most valuable vermin pets ([PETVALUE:100]), the other being the fox squirrel. It is also a very harmful little critter, because it will rot any unprotected food it can touch. It lives in any non-freezing evil biome. It is also an exotic pet, so you need a dungeon master to tame it. Some dwarves like them for their knobs and angles and other for their crackles and pops. If you can, sell them to the elves.
