A tiny parasitic insect. It feeds on skin and blood.

Lice are a species of unremarkable above ground vermin who may be found in any non-freezing biome. They may not be caught in animal traps. A comment on their raw files states they should not survive without a host, implying Toady One plans them to be parasitic in a future update. All lice possess Legendary skill in climbing.

Some dwarves like lice for their ability to infest.
