Luke removes the snake

Luke Skywalker removing a snake from a table in Yoda's hut

Snakes (also called serpents) were creatures with a cylindrical, limbless body, a forked tongue that allowed them to smell, sharp fangs, and slitted eyes. They could grow as long as three meters and become as thick as the arm of a Kiffar. Snakes moved smoothly over surfaces with a distinctive twisting motion. When angered, they started hissing and thrashing. Some snakes were venomous, and their bites were painful.[1] The Anacondans were a race of sentient, snakelike beings.[2]

The swamp-covered planet Dagobah was home to at least one species of snake, the vine snake.[3] Some small specimens resided in Yoda's hut; one such creature startled Luke Skywalker while he was preparing to leave Dagobah to rescue Han Solo and Leia Organa.[4] Skywalker also encountered a snake on Rodia when he opened the door to Huulik's mausoleum.[5] Black snakes could be found on Dathomir,[1] and Moraband was home to a giant Sith serpent that, on closer inspection, was made of hundreds of smaller snakes.[6]

During her time as a bounty hunter, the Dark Jedi Asajj Ventress wore shoulder plates that bore an illustration of a twisted, black snake.[7] At one point, Ventress also wore a neckless crafted to look like a snake.[1]
