The canyon krayt dragon was the smaller and more common species of krayt dragon, a predatory reptile from Tatooine. As its named suggested, it dwelled in rock caves and canyons. Canyon krayt dragons had brown skin and yellow eyes, and their head was covered with a multitude of horns. One such beast had taken up residence in the Laguna Caves by the time of the Invasion of Naboo. As a young boy, Luke Skywalker once fell into the lair of a canyon krayt dragon in one of his daring outings.
