"We don't want our visitors eaten. There are birds, though, high in the canopy, and a few Izizian monkeys, but nothing that can kill you where you stand, although if it's wildlife you're after I hear there is a hragscythe in the city zoo."
―Samera Ra-oon, to Elzar Mann[1]

Izizian monkeys were a type of creature native to[1] the Inner Rim[2] jungle planet Onderon.[1] The species shared its name with Iziz, Onderon's capital city.[3] Around 231 BBY,[4] when Onderon received a sky-island with a replication of its environment for the Valo Republic Fair, fair organizers led by Coordinator Samera Ra-oon avoided stocking the sky-island with more dangerous creatures, opting for a few monkeys and birds as they did not want any of their visitors killed or eaten. When Ra-oon told Jedi Master Elzar Mann about the jungle safaris that would be offered on the Onderon island, she mentioned the presence of the Izizian monkeys.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Izizian monkeys were mentioned in the 2021 novel The High Republic: The Rising Storm, written by Cavan Scott for the Star Wars: The High Republic multimedia project.[1]
