The worrt was an amphibious creature native to Tatooine, though they could also be found on Nal Hutta and Phaeda. It was omnivorous, but was also known to attempt to eat rocks and metal objects, which led to the demise of many worrts. It used its long tongue to catch smaller prey, but would often try to attack creatures bigger than itself.

Worrts could, with great difficulty, be trained as housepets. Jabba Desilijic Tiure kept a number of worrts as pest control, exploiting the creature's lightning-quick tongue. The worrt counted the native ibian among its prey. Worrt venom tasted like tricopper and was strong enough to kill a bantha.

It was said that there were giant worrts—much larger than 1.5 meters in height—roaming the tops of the barren mountains of Tatooine.

A close relative of the worrt was the aggressive sevorrt.

Behind the scenesEdit


A worrt on Phaeda

The worrt was a puppet, like many of the creatures seen at Jabba's palace in Return of the Jedi. Its production nickname is simply "road creature."

The worrt is sometimes mistaken for a frog-dog.

Some sources indicate Jabba introduced worrts to Tatooine from Nal Hutta. A picture from Hutt and Seek shows a worrt in the swamps of Nal Hutta.

In the video game Super Star Wars, worrts are colored green and leave sticky orange goo on the ground when killed.
