Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
How did the wild animals get into the Egyptians homes?
וַיַּ֤עַשׂ ה֙ כֵּ֔ן וַיָּבֹא֙ עָרֹ֣ב כָּבֵ֔ד בֵּ֥יתָה פַרְעֹ֖ה וּבֵ֣ית עֲבָדָ֑יו וּבְכָל־אֶ֧רֶץ מִצְרַ֛יִם תִּשָּׁחֵ֥ת הָאָ֖רֶץ מִפְּנֵ֥י הֶעָרֹֽב׃
And the LORD did so. Heavy swarms of insects invaded Pharaoh’s palace and the houses of his courtiers; throughout the country of Egypt the land was ruined because of the swarms of insects.
God sent a beast with human hands 10 amot long that would rip the roofs off of the Egyptian houses and unlock their doors so that the wild animals could enter.
This beast was known as the “Silonit”.
(Tosefot Hashalem on Vaera 9:27, Sefer Hayashar on Bo, Midrash Hagaddah on Vaera)
