"There once was a Heep-heep from Zrak
Who found himself in a crack
The harder he tried
To remove his backside
The deeper he sank and that's that!
"
―A poem[src]

Heep-heeps were creatures from Zrak,[1] a location in the Zrak system.[2][3][4] They possessed four legs, a backside, a reptilian head and black-colored eyes, and the species was known to dwell near tight holes on occasion. Heep-heeps could have at least one gender, male. A rhyming poem once spoke of a male Heep-heep that became stuck in a crack, and the more he tried to escape, the more he got stuck.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Heep-heep species was introduced in a one-page poem written by Bob Carrau for the 1993 book Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas, a publication that combines creature designs and photographs from various projects of George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars franchise, with original text by Carrau.[1] Lucasfilm employee Leland Chee, who maintains the Holocron continuity database, has indicated that information contained in the book is non-canonical.[5]
