The voroos were a non-sentient species of stationary reptilian predator. They lacked any limbs and used their strong tongue to pull in prey that approached them.

Biology and appearanceEdit

Voroos were a non-sentient, six-eyed, predatory species of reptiles. Measuring between one and ten meters in diameter, voroos camouflaged themselves to look like natural geographical features such as mossy hills and half submerged tree trunks in swamps or bare rocks and sand dunes in deserts. Lacking limbs, the voroos had large maws relative to the rest of their body, which were full of teeth and a strong tongue. Zoologists were unsure exactly how voroos reproduced, although they believed near-microscopic beetles named palaks shared a large amount of their genome with voroos, and after swapping genetic material with them, carried the predators' fertilized gametes to new environments.[1]

BehaviorEdit

Voroos could be found on many planets across the galaxy, and while they preferred moist environments like swamps, they were able to live in almost any habitat including areas as extreme as deserts and tundras. They depended on their camouflage to catch prey, as they were unable to chase them due to their lack of legs. When a meal approached, voroos would use their tongues to pull their prey into their gaping mouths.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Voroos first appeared in Creatures of the Galaxy, a sourcebook for West End Games' Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game released in 1994. The concept and illustration of the voroos was provided by Tom O'Neill, while it was designed by Chuck Truett.
