The shamunaar usually hibernated for decades at a time, however it could be woken up if disturbed.
It was not believed that the shamunaar was native to Roon, but was rather an exotic transplant.
Behind the scenesEdit
The spelling "shamunaar" is used in The Essential Guide to Planets and Moons, Geonosis and the Outer Rim Worlds and the Databank. The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, however, spells the creature's name "chamonaar", although it uses the "shamunaar" spelling for the frigate of the same name. This article assumes the majority spelling is correct.
