Raiths were giant black rodents native to the moon Yavin 8. They had two sharp teeth on the top and bottom of their mouths which they used to bite with impressive force. Raiths were also distinguished by their thick, armored green tails. They preyed on young Melodies though they were in turn hunted by the giant bird-like avrils.
