The word Ape (or monkey) described various species of non-sentient creatures, humanoid in shape. The facial traits of the Sanyassans were often described as being "ape-like"[1] or "simian".[2] The Ferijia system was home to a race of apes.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

In real life, the words "ape" and "monkey" cannot be used interchangeably; the former describes a class of large and tailless primates, while the latter refers to smaller creatures having a tail and cheek pouches, among other differences.[4] In Star Wars literature, however, the two names have been used alternatively—the Sanyassans have been described as both "monkeylike"[5] and "ape-like".[1]
