Ranats were a species of rodent-like sentients. They measured about one meter tall, had a long tail, long incisors that protruded from their lower jaw, and long whiskers. Five years before the Battle of Yavin, a Ranat bounty hunter and his Nimbanel colleague attempted to collect a bounty on the Trandoshan bounty hunter Bossk on the Outer Rim planet of Lothal, which had been issued by the corrupt Imperial Security Bureau Lieutenant Jenkes. However, Bossk overpowered them and knocked them unconscious. Later, another Ranat was spotted at Chalmun's Cantina on the planet Tatooine during Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi's fateful encounter with the smuggler Han Solo and his Wookiee companion Chewbacca.
