Sand dwelling creature may refer to:

a) Real life animals that have chosen the desert wastelands as their cozy home sweet home;

b) Includes anything that may live in a sandy place, so I might create a mummy that thrives in desert tommbs swallowed by yellow sands.

Wich statement is valid?

This is not a signature.

It can be anything as long as it is a living and breathing organism.
