"But why was it so important to get this pig here?"
"Because a puffer pig has a nose for precious minerals. It can do the job of a dozen mining scanners."
―Hera Syndulla and Lando Calrissian[src]

Puffer pigs were a non-sentient mammalian species.[2] They were capable of sniffing out valuable minerals with the efficiency of a dozen mining scanners, making them very valuable to smugglers and miners. When frightened, puffer pigs would inflate their bodies to massive proportions, and were capable of multiple size increases if further threats occurred. The galactic entrepreneur Lando Calrissian once traded with the criminal Azmorigan for a puffer pig, offering him the Twi'lek pilot Hera Syndulla in return. Calrissian planned on using the pig to find minerals on the planet Lothal; however, Azmorigan confronted Calrissian and demanded the pig back after Syndulla escaped from him. Syndulla and her crew, along with Calrissian, then defeated Azmorigan and his men, using the pig itself in the combat to knock down several of the criminal's men.
