They lived and hunted in packs around the tree tops of their home world. They would often hunt their prey from the trees, tracking them before dropping down to surround them. In contrast, rancors used their long arms to swing among the tree tops and hunt Purboles.
Behind the scenes
Purboles were creatures in the 2003 massively multiplayer online role-playing game Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, prior to the game's closure on December 15, 2011. The concept art annotation shown in From Pencil to Pixel: The Art of Star Wars Galaxies initially identified the purbole simply as "monkey sloth."
