- "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
Izizian monkeys were a type of creature native to the Inner Rim jungle planet Onderon. The species shared its name with Iziz, Onderon's capital city. Around 231 BBY, 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.
