Trolls (Torog in Sindarin) are big,
and stupid creatures not very common in Middle Earth. They eat anything
they get their hands on and it is said that if a troll had a brain half
as big as his stomach he would be the most intelligent creature in the
world. They are extremely sensitive to sunlight. There are many
species of trolls, e.g. cave-trolls, snow-trolls, stone-trolls,
mountain-trolls and olog-hai, there are
even rumours of two-headed trolls. Here is a picture of the trolls
Bert and Tom from The Hobbit (they are stoned!!!).
