The Marsh-wiggles were a race of humanoid creatures that inhabited the marshlands near the River Shribble in the northern parts of the World of Narnia.
Marsh-wiggles had green-grey straw-like hair, large ears, long legs and arms, webbed hands with long fingers, and hard webbed feet, similar to those of ducks.
They also had a muddy complexion and greenish skin, and held an extremely pessimistic view on life.
Lifestyle and habitsThe Marsh-wiggles lived in small structures called Wigwams, which were spread far apart from each other in the marsh (the marsh-wiggles were very fond of privacy).
They were excellent archers and fishermen. As as a result, their diet included eel stew, eel pie and fricasseed frogs.
They smoked a strange sort of heavy tobacco, said by some to be mixed with mud, out of pipes. The smoke from their pipe was heavy, and did not rise but floated to the ground.
The marsh-wiggle Puddleglum was said to have enjoyed whiskey, though whether this was true of all Marsh-wiggles is unknown.Marsh-wiggles do much of the work involving fishing and watercraft in Narnia, such as docking ships at Cair Paravel, and ferrying people across rivers. Marsh-wiggles may also have helped man the Narnian navy.
