  • Ok, that was really dumb. Please don't post things like that again. Chack Jadson 14:16, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

Atmospheres Edit

"Mynocks also had bat-like wings which they could use to fly in atmospheres, although were limited to vacuums due to an allergic reaction to helium found in atmospheres which would cause them to inflate and nearly explode before dying." "In atmospheres, a mynock produced a loud, piercing screech."

These two sentences appear to contradict. If they were limited to vacuums, how could they ever be in an atmosphere? Would a mynock be able to survive in an atmosphere without helium in its composition?--Lord OblivionSith holocronSith Emblem 17:28, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

    • I've never heard of this new info, but maybe it's high concentrations of Helium. Also, Helium might not be that prevalent in breathable atmospheres, its not that high in ours (compared to Hydrogen and Oxygen). I know that in Lando's first encounter with them, he's told that pilots are supposed to "shake them off" when they first enter the atmosphere. And the interior of the Space Slug in ESB had an atmosphere (as opposed to a vacuum), the crew of the Falcon only needed masks (probably for the 'Space Slug Halitosis').Tocneppil 22:05, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
  • As per Tocneppil. Logically, there was no vacuum inside the space slug, thus meaning that there was an atmosphere. Mynocks can live in or out of atmospheres, I'd reckon. Cutch 22:47, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

I removed the contradictory content and just reworded it as follows:

"Mynocks were one of the few species that could live in the vacuum of space. They had bat-like wings which they could use to fly in atmospheres. However, they were often limited to the vacuum of space due to an allergy to helium found in the atmosphere of many planets. This allergic reaction would cause them to inflate and nearly explode before dying."

I hope that is satisfactory to all. I'm gonna go ahead and remove the contradictory tag from the article. - JMAS 21:46, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Sorry for being n00bish, but what does self-controdictory mean? --Nightmare--In Soviet Russia, Talk Page edits YOU!! 23:46, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

Betrayal Appearance Edit

In Betrayal it says, "The creature--revealed by Ben's lightsaber to be a fleshy streched wing with eyes on one end, a tail at the other, and a wet mouth twoard the center of its underside something like a mynock--flew strait at him," on page 337 of I think is the first edition hardback. For the rest of the book it refers to them as mynocks. I think they weren't because it said "...something of a mynock," and they were only calling them that for lack of a better designation. Therefor I think that mynocks were only mentioned in Betrayal but I wish to hear other user opinions before it is changed. NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 19:41, 8 July 2008 (UTC)

  • I think that counts as an appearence, after all, mynocks are incredibly diverse, one who has four wings, two mouths, and six inch eye stocks could be closely related to one with three eyes, a mouth on a long stalk and two arms coming out of it's wings. so, I don't think it would be to big of a stretch to say that the wierd unnamed faux mynock is a regular mynock.......god I lovemynocks >:'D 01:34, July 12, 2011 (UTC)tristan7grunt
