Shusugaunt was the ocean-covered homeworld of the Shusugaunt people. The squat natives attempted to conquer the neighboring Gravlex Med thousands of years before the Battle of Yavin, but abandoned their invasion when the planet's high gravity proved too much for them.
It was on the planet Shusugaunt that Republic xenologists first discovered Anx skeletons, before discovering living members of the species on Gravlex Med. These skeletons were actually the remains of the Anx colony that had landed on Shusugaunt, and had been killed by the natives. Despite past unpleasantness between the Shusugaunt and the Anx, Horox Ryyder, Senator of Raioballo sector, always tried to represent the Shusugaunt fairly in the Galactic Senate.
