The ankheg is a burrowing insect-like creature between 10 and 20 feet long, found mainly in forests or choice agricultural land. They are covered with plates or shells made out of a substance called chitin which is extremely tough and very light. The size, weight and strength of the shells make them highly sought after in many situations, including the creation of armor.
