The laa were scalefish native to the oceans of Naboo.

Biology and appearanceEdit

The typical laa was a green-scaled fish with a long snout and a broad tail. The laa also had a long, thin dorsal fin tipped with a bio-luminescent bulb. This bulb helped attract the favorite prey of the laa, the yobshrimp.[2] Laa also picked out yobshrimp from the gills of tee, which, despite being voracious, did not harm the laa for the yobshrimp were parasitic to the tee.[1]

BehaviorEdit

Like several other fish, the laa were attracted to the bright lights of Otoh Gunga, but learned by experience not to pass through the membrane openings to the air-filled domes.[4][5]

HistoryEdit

Laa existed in the waters of the Mid Rim planet Naboo during the invasion of the planet by the Trade Federation.[3] They were present in Lake Paonga as Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn, his Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi, and the Gungan Jar Jar Binks swam down to the city of Otoh Gunga to speak with Gungan representatives.[3] In 20 BBY, laa, along with ray, faa and mee, were present in a holding tank aboard the Titavian IV, an exploration vessel formerly operated by the Intergalactic Zoological Society on Mycroft whose mission was to gather and catalog specimens from across the galaxy.[6]

Behind the scenesEdit

Laa, along with its musically-influenced scalefish cousins, the doo, ray, mee, faa, see, and tee, first appeared in the deep waters of Naboo in the 1999 prequel trilogy film Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. They were later illustrated by Terryl Whitlatch in the 2001 reference book The Wildlife of Star Wars: A Field Guide, and referenced in the 2004 comic Star Wars: Republic 69: Dreadnaughts of Rendili, Part 1.
