"When he gets to Mos Eisley, he's going to have a hard enough time telling the cantina habitués why he no longer has the Hound's Tooth; it's been his ship for a long time. He's not about to tell anyone that he got frightened out of it like a Biituian fen-hare."
―Boba Fett, on Bossk losing his starship[src]

The Biituian fen-hare was a species native to Biitu,[1] a lush agriworld in the Cassandran Worlds.[2] It was a timid creature, and by 4 ABY, it had been incorporated into a Galactic Basic Standard simile for a frightened person. The bounty hunter Boba Fett referred to it in this manner to describe fellow hunter Bossk after the latter bailed out of his own starship, believing that it contained explosives that were about to detonate.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

K. W. Jeter created the Biituian fen-hare for his novel Slave Ship, which was published by Bantam Spectra in 1998.
