Bark mites were arthropods on Rori and Endor. They ate bark, and made large hives in trees and caves.

Biology[edit | edit source]

Bark mites were herbivorous insects. They were usually docile but they could become aggressive when protecting their lair.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

During the Galactic Civil War, a colony of giants bark mites lived in a cave on the Nabooian moon of Rori. The creatures had discovered that the cave wass damp and warm, making it a perfect nursery for their brood.[2]

After the Battle of Yavin, Doctor Maldien conducted illegal and highly dangerous bioengineering experiments in a laboratory on Corellia to create very aggressive and intelligent creatures. This included engineered bark mites.[3]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Bark mites appeared in the video game Star Wars Galaxies, a massively multiplayer online-role playing game developed by Sony and published by LucasArts,[1] prior to its closure on December 15, 2011.[4]
