Butcherbugs were a species of insect that were native to the swamps of the planet Dagobah. While living in exile on Dagobah, Jedi Grand Master Yoda often found butcherbugs and various other swamp life coming through the door of his hut. He allowed all bar the venomous creatures to stay and keep him company.
