"This creature is far tougher and more massive than any of the other arachne."
Jana T'bayr[src]

Arachnes were arachnids native to Endor.

Biology and appearance[edit | edit source]

Their fangs carried a strong but non-lethal poison. Several varieties of Arachne had the distinction of having ten legs.

History[edit | edit source]

A breed of arachne known as bone gnasher was also known to inhabit the Krayt Cult Cave on Tatooine since they had been imported from Endor to Tatooine[2] by the Krayt Cultists.[3]

A bio-engineered group also made their way to Talus, but these were mostly eradicated by a group of spacers working for the Corellian Security Force.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

In the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies, most of the gigantic Arachne spiders 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.
