"Of course. I've been to Tatooine, actually, and bagged a krayt dragon there. Its pearls paid for the upgrades on the Jewel."
Nakari Kelen[src]

Krayt dragons were large, carnivorous reptiles that hailed from Tatooine, a desert planet in the Outer Rim region of the galaxy. They came in two subspecies and, despite their fierceness, were hunted for the precious pearls found in their bodies.

The skeletal remains of a krayt dragon

Krayt dragons were giant carnivorous reptiles that came in two subspecies: the smaller and more common canyon krayt, and the larger greater krayt.[1]


Hungry krayt dragons posed a serious threat to the diminutive Jawas,[3] and their cry was enough to ward off the fierce sand nomads known as the Tusken Raiders.[4]


Krayt dragons were commonly known for their pearls, bodily concentrations that were considered to be highly valuable.[5]

At the time of the Invasion of Naboo, one krayt dragon had taken up residence in the Laguna Caves on Tatooine, in which rescue teams for the Boonta Eve Classic did not dare to go.[3]
