A chuSwI' is a type of rodent animal lifeform native to the planet Qo'noS. ChuSwI' live mostly underground and make an annoying noise. Because of this nature, "chuSwI'" is often used as an insult in the Klingon language. (GKN novel: Enemy Territory, et al.)

In Marc Okrand's tlhIngan Hol language, chuSwI' literally means "noisy one". (tlhIngan Hol reference: The Klingon Dictionary)
