PG 88 A BONE TO PICK
Four adorable Star Wars
critters you'll love.
We wish these cute critters from
STARWARS were real.
With its roundish body and doe-like peepers, the Porg is a sea-dwelling bird that can be found on the island of Ahch-To, where Luke Skywalker exiled himself to before the Battle of Crait. Chewbacca tried to eat one, but couldn’t because it was staring at him with big, puppy eyes.
This fox-like creature used to live in burrows beneath the planet of Crait. After the Rebel Alliance left their outpost on Crait, the Vulptices began to roam free. The animal has crystalline fur resulting from a diet of Crait's mineral surface.
Although huge and intimidating at first glance, Banthas are, in fact, peaceful and gentle. These hairy mammals were domesticated and used by the Tusken Raiders as mounts. Their blue-hued milk can be drunk or made into yoghurt, ice cream and butter.
The Tauntaun is a non-sentient lizard that's a hybrid of a Llama, Ram and Tyrannosaurus. Found on the snowy plains of Hoth, these creatures were used for patrol duty by the Rebel Alliance. Jabba the Hutt kept a stuffed Tauntaun head in his palace beside a frozen Han Solo.
