this large, omnivorous reptile was native to the planet Naboo. They were swift-moving and intelligent, and were fierce predators. Despite their habit of living in the uplands of the planet, zalaacas were excellent swimmers. Little is known about the zalaaca, but they strongly resembled sando aqua monsters. The front feet of the zalaaca were studded with claws, and the rear feet were protected by thick spikes on their fetlocks. Gungans considered the capture of a wild zalaaca foal to be a right of passage, and the successful capture and training of a zalaaca meant the Gungan obtained a loyal war mount.
