Reeks were large, muscular quadrupeds native to the planet Ylesia.[3]

Though naturally herbivores, a starved reek could become a ravenous meat-eater and change its skin color to a deep red, while on other worlds they could be brown, gray, or sometimes yellow. Those bred in the Petranaki arena were purposely fed meat in order to increase their overall aggression.[7] Their sprawling posture and immense weight made them relatively slow-moving. They sported two large cheek horns that could be used for head-locking in combat with another Reek as a show of dominance.[4]

They also inhabited the Codian Moon, where they lived in small herds.[5] The creatures existed on Saleucami as well, where one was ridden by General Grievous, leader of the Separatist Droid Army during the battle of Saleucami.[8]

Behind the scenesEdit

Reeks first appeared in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones.

They are very similar to real-life's rhinoceros and they share many of their biology: they are herbivores but still aggressive if provocated, they are massive animals with heavy skin and horns used as weapons, their main tactic is charge the enemies, they have bad sights but powerfuls senses of smell and they live in herds. They are also aproximatly the same size of white rhinoceros although rhinos are much heavier.

There is a contradiction regarding the creature's height. Both the Encyclopedia and Databank entries agree that these creatures stood at about 2.24 meters tall. However, the later Star Wars Journeys: Beginnings claims that they stood at 4.04 meters in height. However, the fact that there are many subspecies of Reeks may explain the fact.
