Competition: name the breed and discover its role in the Doldrums

There is a new creature currently under investigation on my workbench.

It was discovered on Sunday the 7th of June hopping around the water outlet in the garden. It's a wriggler; doesn't stop moving and doesn't fear humans as the other breeds do. It's also a lot smaller and can fit into crevices other Sock Horrors cannot.

This creature has never been seen before, however since it's discovery there has been an explosion in numbers.

There is much study and extensive exploration to continue before these creatures can be presented to you in the Sock Horror Mausoleum, but I expect that they will be a prolific breed and will spread themselves far and wide.

I would like you to be the investigators of this strain of Sock Horror. It is up to you to name these creatures and to determine their role in the Doldrums. All entries into the competition will receive a 10% discount at the Sock Horror Mausoleum and the winner will also receive the first creature of its kind and a certificate of discovery.

Further information on the breeds and roles of the other creatures from the Doldrums can be found in their listing descriptions.

Please send your entries to before Sunday 28th of June. The winner will be announced on Wednesday the 1st of July.
