- "And you're not a kinrath or tawd, right?"
- ―Mattis Banz, describing Gherd
Kinraths were a species of giant arachnids that could be found in caves on the planets of Dantooine and Kashyyyk. In addition to being venomous, they were also capable of spinning webs. When describing Gherd, Mattis Banz made sure to ask Gherd was not a kinrath. Kinrath eggs sometimes contained a type of kyber crystal known as a Dantari crystal.
Behind the scenes
Kinrath were set to appear in an episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but the show was cancelled before the episode could be completed. A clip from the episode featuring the kinrath was shown at Celebration Anaheim in 2015 where eight of the creatures attacked several Wookiees and Clone Force 99 on Kashyyyk. The kinrath were shown to be aggressive and primitive, and were able to spit a spider-like web from a frontal appendix. The kinrath were, however, not able to defeat the Wookiees and were all killed.
