DUH! Obviously it's the lair of that giant ant lion-type creature from Star Wars. Remember? They tried to throw Luke Skywalker in so he'd get eaten all up, but they forgot who they were dealing with!
As a kid in Florida, the funnel-shaped traps that the "ant lions" made to catch their prey with were commonplace. My friends and I would knock just a few grains of sand in hoping to draw the ant lion out so we could see it.
Ahhh...the carefree days of youth. All a boy needed to feel happy and fulfilled was a few firecrackers, some Army men to blow up and a dog-eared Playboy that some kid stole from his Dad.
