The harsh, arid wastes of Tatooine are seen as hospitable only by equally tough creatures. One such creature is the Scyk.

Scyks are well-suited to the difficulties of their environment. They are small and built low to the ground, minimizing their exposure to the irritating blasts of the planet's frequent sandstorms. Their thick hides minimize moisture loss, and they habitually remain motionless for long periods of time, conserving precious metabolic resources. However, should anything that resembles potential prey wander by, scyks are quick to attack.

Scyks are frequently the bane of aspiring biologists. They possess keen senses and are very fast when aroused, and will pursue their prey for long distances. They also possess a poisonous bite capable of debilitating a biologist in seconds. As such, they should only be studied with great caution in the field.
