List of Star Wars creatures

This is a list of creatures in the fictional Star Wars universe. To be listed here, creatures must be noted in multiple canonical sources.


An Acklay is a large non-Sentient creature resembling an Earth's praying mantis. It is a Crustacean. It is equipped with three eyes and six legs with four digits each, the fourth of which terminates in an elongated scythe-like claw and a crest to protect it from air attack. As a carnivore, it possesses a mouth full of long, sharp teeth that it uses for catching fish. It originated on Vendaxa, but has since adapted to other environments such as Felucia and Geonosis. One was killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi during the Battle of Geonosis. Acklay are night and day hunters. Acklay could be force sensitive due to a rare mutation, learning to use force lightning with their mouths.
