Biology and appearanceEdit

Sand burrowers were large, carnivorous worms with mottled brown carapaces and short appendages running the length of their bodies. Their eyelesss heads featured a circular, four-jawed mouth lined with small, inward-pointed teeth. Sand burrowerss moved close to the surface when traveling underground, as sand was thrashed about as they moved toward prey, and could outrun humanoids. They used ground vibrations to detect prey, emerging from beneath the sand and snatching their victims in their mouths before burrowing underground. However, sand burrowers mistook the explosion of a thermal detonator on the sand as a person standing on that spot, which could be used to distract them.[1]

Sand burrowers in the galaxyEdit

Sand burrowers were native to the planet Blenjeel.[1] In the year 14 ABY,[2] Jedi Apprentice Jaden Korr witnessed one swallow a shipwreck survivor and was forced to avoid them as he searched for spare parts to repair his ship.[1]

  2. Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy dates itself to ten years after the Battle of Endor. As The Essential Reader's Companion dates the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, including the Battle of Endor, to 4 ABY, it can be assumed that Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy takes place in 14 ABY.
