this feline predator was native to the planet Naboo, where it hunted the plains for small creatures. Despite their fearsome reputation as hunters, the tusk-cats were natural shepherds and could be domesticated and used as herding animals. The Naboo royalty maintained a pack of tusk-cats for use as mounts for parades and hunts, and many wealthy families kept tusk-cats as guardians for their children and homes. These mammals were named for the two heavy tusks which jutted from their lower jaw, which were used to pierce the flesh of their prey. The long tail of the tusk-cat was used for counterbalancing the creature as it ran, giving the tusk-cat a swift gait across the open plains.
