"You look strong enough to pull the ears off a gundark."
Han Solo to Luke Skywalker — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

Gundarks were large, fearsome predatory animals from Vanqor. To tell someone that they "looked strong enough to pull the ears off a gundark" meant that they were healthy and unusually strong.[3] Gundarks also had 16 claws on them.[4]

At some point prior to Anakin and Obi-Wan's assignment of guarding Senator Padmé Amidala from an assassination attempt, Obi-Wan and Anakin fell into a Gundark's nest, although Anakin reminded Obi-Wan that he went in the nest to rescue Obi-Wan.[5]The gang leader Tasu leech's rifle had gundark bone used as it's holster.

Behind the scenesEdit

Though gundarks were first mentioned in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, they did not appear in canon until the first season of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series. Their first appearance in any Star Wars media was in the Star Wars Legends game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, released in 2001.
