'Snuffler' by Mara999 'Snuffler' by Mara999
Among the various breeds Tolkien implies that orcs are divided into, there is a small tracker-breed, called a "snuffler" in its sole appearance in Return of the King. They're described as having over-developed sensory organs, especially their noses. When reading the creature's description in the chapter I pictured it as looking similar to Alan Lee's painting of it standing with the soldier-orc, except slightly more bestial. The ratlike Skaven in Warhammer are a main source of inspiration, because I think it would be fitting for it to resemble an overgrown rat.
