Puffer turtles were a reptilian species of violet-colored turtles native to the swamps of Clak'dor VII, a planet ravaged by biochemical warfare. The species possessed bladders which they could swell to a point that stretched the flexibility of their shells. When they exhaled from the bladders, it could produce a sound similar to a low note on a bassoon. In the year 24 ABY, the Bith band Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes incorporated the sounds made by a nearby puffer turtle, along with other animals, into the music they played when they were in hiding from the Black Sun criminal organization.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

A puffer turtle first appeared in the 1998 book Young Jedi Knights: Trouble on Cloud City, the thirteenth novel in the Young Jedi Knights series. The book was written by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta, and did not make clear the species' level of sentience.
