Sandfleas were small creatures native to desert climates, including those on Tatooine and Nam Chorios. They often lived within the fur of nerfs, making it seem likely that they inhabited the planets of Alderaan and Kashyyyk as well. Larger species of sandflea supposedly made good pets.
Behind the scenesEdit
Different sources have shown different spellings for the sandflea. On the Completely Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia and in the short novel Galaxy of Fear: Eaten Alive, it is spelled as "Sand Flea." In And the Band Played On: The Band's Tale, it is spelled as one word.
