Anoobas were carnivorous desert mammals[1] that lived throughout the Outer Rim Territories. Wild anoobas traveled in packs of 10 to 12 members.[4] They stabbed their prey with chin tusks and then tore it apart using long claws and fangs.[1]


A pair of anoobas kept at the Citadel by Osi Sobeck

The bounty hunter Embo owned an anooba named Marrok, whom he had trained to assist him in his jobs.[2]

The Phindian Osi Sobeck kept a pack of dark anoobas which he used to hunt down fugitives on the planet Lola Sayu. During a mission by the Republic to rescue prisoners of war from the Citadel prison, an anooba was able to pounce on Jedi Master Even Piell while he was distracted by pursuing droids. The beast struggled with Piell on the ground before stabbing him in the chest with its tusk, leading to his death.[3]

Sabine Wren, a Mandalorian and member of the Ghost rebel crew, painted an anooba insignia on her armor.[5]

Around 34 ABY, Dok-Ondar kept a stuffed anooba head mounted on the wall of his store.[6]

Behind the scenes[]

The anooba was a concept designed for Star Wars: Episode 1 The Phantom Menace by concept artist Terryl Whitlatch, who explored the anooba as a possible creature on Tatooine. In the episode "Citadel Rescue" of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, anoobas were kept in cages that were visually inspired by the velociraptor cages in the 1993 movie Jurassic Park.[7]
