WIP

Belohole


Pronunciation: buh-LOW-hole

Below (as in below the ground) + blowhole + hole, as in the hole it's in.

Was also considering the spelling as Bullowhole, which would also take a cue from burrow, but that doesn't look as nice visually imo.

Belowga

Below + beluga. Couldn't decide which of these two I preferred.
