May I suggest we use a picture from ROTS rather than Galaxies to illustrate this article? Gothymog 23:25, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Done. Cato Neimoidia 23:48, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
Where is the pencil coloured pic from?
Also, possibly, a mention about the honking sound? GrandAdmiralParck 05:31, 12 August 2006 (UTC)
why are they considered non sentient? boga seemed sentient enough. Ugluk 23:28, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
"However, Boga was killed by sacrificially absorbing an AT-TE's main cannon blast to protect Obi-Wan Kenobi when Commander Cody executed Order 66." I disagree. After watching it again, I believe this is inaccurate on two points: First, the AT-TE cannon shot hit the rocks near them, not striking either directly. Second, they both plunged into the pool, with only Kenobi shown emerging; the fate of Boga is presumed but not directly divulged. For all we know, it lived.--Iampariah 07:09, 27 December 2006 (UTC)
Clarification regarding varactyl reproduction Edit
I'd like to see one piece of information clarified: how does one egg lead to a population of dozens? – Aidje talk 21:18, 24 November 2006 (UTC) ==males==we only have pics of the blue females, ala Boga. Can someone get the VD pic of the orange males?!22.214.171.124 10:04, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
- Maybe Varactyls don't need a male to reproduce? How else would there be dozens?
The RotS page says "In the two shots where the Wookiees roar just before their battle, the varactyl's (the lizard-mount used by Obi-Wan elsewhere in the film) bark can be heard." Anyone hear this? Cutch 02:06, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
I may have.I'm not for sure.Sith-venator 15:35, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
- I've definitely heard the sound, but it could equally well be the call of a bolotaur. Since the bolotaur looks like a descendant of a varactyl, it may have the same callJustinGann 20:32, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
I went back and watched it on Spike and yes i do hear vartactyls.Also bolataurs sounds more like dinosaurs from black and white movies from the 30s.So yes they may have been scared or responding to the wookies roar,I dont know but i know i heard one.Sith-venator 02:56, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
Taris and Tatooine? Edit
They are on Tatooine and Taris?
- Um, yeah... Tarisian Varactles are most likely in captivity.--Lord OblivionSith holocron 13:57, 12 February 2007 (UTC)
Semi-sentient designation Edit
reptilian lizard-like this is a needless recapitulation in the description of these creatures. quadrupedal saurian is more more accurate and avoids needless restatement. Sochwa 19:36, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
Not all reptiles are lizard like ((see:snakes))((see:pterosaurs)), but this animal is definitely not reptilian ((see:feathers)). Feathered, lizard-like should suffice for this creature. 126.96.36.199 10:50, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
We have three pics of the blue females, but we need at least one pic of the orange male from VDJustinGann 09:04, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
