Kurets were a species of small, brown-colored insects, approximately one centimeter long, found on the world of Kubindi. They possessed a hive-based mentality and were often found in swarms. This made them dangerous as they had the ability to coordinate their attacks via pheromones, and especially because of their sharp pincers.
They were prized as food by the Kubaz, though they were tamed, which made them somewhat of an expensive meal.
