|Kashyyykian giant weaver|
Kashyyykian giant weavers were extremely large, red-pigmented spiders with fat bodies that were indigenous to the lower levels of the wroshyr forests on Kashyyyk, the Wookiee homeworld. They were known to be intelligent enough to coordinate ambushes on unsuspecting creatures, and had the tenacity to track their prey for over a kilometer. When attacking, they immobilized their victims with thick strands of web and copious amounts of poisonous fluid from their upraised mandibles.
About 2 BBY, Sith Lord Darth Vader sent his secret apprentice, Starkiller, to raise an army to oppose the Galactic Emperor. In order to gain the help of Bail Organa of Alderaan, he journeyed to Kashyyyk to retrieve the senator's daughter, Leia Organa. Making his way toward the Imperial skyhook anchor facility where she was being held, Marek encountered several giant weavers lying in wait for him. He barely survived the ambush and thereafter traveled through the upper levels of the jungle canopy.
