"Ortolan secretions are quite distinctive."
―Inspector Thanoth[src]

Ortolans were a sentient species of squat, blue-skinned bipeds with large, floppy ears, beady black eyes, and a trunk-like nose that were native to the cold planet Orto. They consume large amounts of food in order to develop a warm layer of blubber because their homeworld is so cold.[5] Max Rebo, leader of the Max Rebo Band, was a male Ortolan.[3]

Biology and appearanceEdit

Ortolans were a sentient species of squat, blue-skinned bipeds with trunk-like noses and two beady black eyes.[1] They also possessed small mouths filled with blunted teeth behind their noses[6] and a pair of large, floppy ears,[1] which were sensitive to sound[3] and used to store fat.[4] Lacking arms, Ortolans instead manipulated objects using their feet,[2] whose articulated toes were able to absorb food and drink.[4] According to Inspector Thanoth, their secretions were "quite distinctive." Ortolans were capable of speaking Galactic Basic[6] and their average lifespan was 71+ years.[2]
