The Angler was a bloblike, multi-ocular crustaceal mollusk that was native to Yavin 4.
Biology and appearance[edit | edit source]
The angler "fishes" for underwater prey by dangling rootlike tentacles/claws below the water's surface. Some prey, like the mucous salamander, could easily avoid an angler's clutches when underwater.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
In the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies, most of the gigantic spider creatures are defined as being an Angler. Yet the name is often misleading, because creatures such as the bone gnashers are defined as an Angler, despite being on Tatooine, where fishing for prey is virtually impossible.
