Out of the growing light came two handlers leading a pair of huge beasts, some ten feet in length with correspondingly long legs and necks. […] Jame noted their splayed, three-toed feet but even more their short, prehensile trunks. Fur-fringed, slit nostrils opened on either side of the latter, situated on the tops of their small heads. Their bodies, by contrast, seemed swollen.
– Jame's narration, The Sea of Time, "Chapter IX: Into the Wastes", III
Lambas are draft animals used in the Southern Wastes. They have three stomachs, the biggest of which can hold 30 gallons of water, which makes them invaluable in the desert.
