Bone gnashers were a breed[2] of subterranean[1] arachne native to the planet Endor.[2] Bone gnashers were so called because they were able to rapidly strip the flesh off corpses.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

During the Galactic Civil War, a pack of bone gnashers inhabited the Krayt Cult Cave near Mos Eisley.[1][2] They had been transplanted from Endor to Tatooine,[2] likely by the Krayt Cultists themselves.[3]

Sometime following the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, a spacer was sent by Tori Radeen to kill bone gnashers in the Krayt Cult Cave, and bring back six poison glands. Tori Radeen used the glands to create a new poison for use by Jabba the Hutt.[1][2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Bone gnashers appeared in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts,[1] prior to its closure on December 15, 2011.[4] Bone gnashers were added to the game as part of the "Legacy Quest" with the release of the "Publish 25", a.k.a. the "New Game Enhancements", on November 15, 2005.[5]
