"They're delicious."
Omnino on savrips[src]

The Mantellian Savrips were a species of large, sentient natives to Ord Mantell. They had hunched-over statures, leathery skin, snake-like heads, and arms long enough to drag on the ground.

HistoryEdit

"Flashy can bulls-eye a savrip between the eyes five times before the critter even knows it's dead."
―Corso Riggs, on his blaster, "Flashy"[src]

Often believed to be simply a very cunning non-sentient animal by many other species, the Savrips were actually a sentient, but technologically very primitive, species. They had their own informal language, and some could even learn to speak accented Basic. The Warlord Taxer Sundown used the Mantellians' prejudice against the Savrips to blame the murders his organization carried out on them.

Savrips were naturally inclined to combat, and this, coupled with their unusual language, only fostered the notion that these beings were unintelligent. Because of this, many were hunted or exported, and, by the time of the Galactic Empire, few Savrips remained on Ord Mantell.

Savrip meat was also enjoyed by some, such as Baroness Omnino, who, with her son and the aforementioned impostor Jedi Sundown, planned to breed them for food on Ord Mantell in the years up to 37 BBY. However, this plan failed due to the intervention of Qui-Gon Jinn.

The Mantellian Savrip was also a dejarik holomonster.

The Savrip known as Kalhar was known to live on Tatooine. One Mantellian Savrip joined Darth Krayt's new Sith Order.
