"A flock of winged reptiles. They just came from out of nowhere. I almost didn't see them."
"It's a good thing you did. They were probably migrating killspikes. Not the smartest avians, but very thick-skinned and they are able to do plenty of damage to low-flying ships."
- ―The Skull Queen informs Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi about the killspike.
A rather dim-witted avian with extremely thick reptilian skin, the winged killspike migrated in low-flying flocks.
As 18-year-old Anakin Skywalker very nearly discovered in 23 BBY, piloting a Nallastian V-wing shuttle while on a mission to Fondor, the 'winged reptiles' were capable of doing a great deal of damage to low-flying ships.
