Skako was a planet located in the galaxy's Core Worlds that was the homeworld of the Skakoan species. Its unique atmospheric pressure required Skakoans to wear pressure suits to survive off-world; otherwise, they would explode when exposed to standard oxygen-based atmospheres. Eight eyed, gasbag-headed vine walkers known as octuptarras were found on Skako, and Wat Tambor, the foreman of the Techno Union during the final years of the Galactic Republic, was a male Skakoan from this world. Skako sat between Brentaal IV and Fedalle on the Hydian Way hyperspace route.
