Kidneys were organs located near the lower back on Humans. Although naturally having both a left and right kidney, Humans could survive with only one. Kidneys could be transplanted and even cloned if needed.
Diffrent species can have a diffrent number of kidneys. For example members of the Yarkora species have four kidneys.
Kidney stones could accumulate within the kidneys and be passed from the body.
Yuuzhan Vong typically lacked kidneys.
