Notable distinctions from the common rancor were its brightly colored skin, sharp spines that ran along much of its body as well as its tongue, and webbing between its fingers and toes. The jungle rancor also had much larger jaws than the common rancor.
Early in the Clone Wars, a jungle rancor was found in the Nightsisters temple. A pair of Jedi assigned to investigate the temple were chased by the beast, but they were able to lead it into a pit, trapping it.
Jungle rancors were also found on the jungle world of Felucia. After crash-landing on the planet, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano crossed paths with two of the large beasts. Strangely, nearby villagers did not seem to be threatened by these rancors.
