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. It was believed by zoologists that the palak species of beetles were involved in Voroos reproduction, but the subject was poorly understood.

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, dexterous, tongue. Voroos' teeth were not particularly dangerous, but made it difficult to remove anything from their mouths without damaging it. Zoologists were unsure exactly how voroos reproduced, although they believed that 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. This theory was the subject of some study, but was poorly understood.[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 wrap their tongues around the prey to pull it 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.
