"Perhaps all Kowakian monkey-lizards should be exterminated for the good of the galaxy."
Count Dooku[8]

Kowakian monkey-lizards, also known as Kowakians, sometimes referred to as monkeys, were a race of semi-sentient reptilian creatures often used by members of the underworld as pets. Owners of Kowakians included Jabba Desilijic Tiure,[7] Hondo Ohnaka,[6] and Emil Graf.[9] They were capable of using weapons such as a blaster and, in the case of Pikk Mukmuk, a pirate tank.[5] One Kowakian became a bounty hunter and turned the Wookiee Chewbacca over to the Galactic Empire.[10] They were related to the much larger Kowakian ape-lizard.[11] Due to their appearance they were often mistaken for pests.[12] Monkey-lizards were quite intelligent and capable of mimicking almost any language.[2]


"Kowakian monkey lizards—biggest pain this side of the galaxy. I hate those things! Hate 'em!"
Poe Dameron[13]

Kowakian monkey-lizards were impish creatures hailing from the planet Kowak. They were known for their shrill laughter and sophisticated senses of humor.[3] A notable Kowakian monkey-lizard was Salacious B. Crumb, who served as court jester in Jabba's Palace during the reign of the Galactic Empire.[14]

Roasted Kowakian monkey-lizards could be purchased on Nevarro. When bounty hunter Din Djarin arrived in Nevarro City, he passed a roasted monkey lizard stand, where a still-living monkey-lizard, caged, looked out in fear.[15]

Around 34 ABY, Kowakian monkey-lizards were imported to the planet Batuu and sold as pets in the Creature Stall at Black Spire Outpost.[16]
