"Many years ago a female torton, her growth naturally stunted from birth, found her way into a cave not far to the Southeast of Narmle."
―A biologist article on the Holonet[src]

The Pygmy Torton Cave was a cave southeast of the city of Narmle on the Nabooian moon Rori. It was populated by pygmy tortons.

History[edit | edit source]

"She found the cave an environment suitable to her needs: the passages were easy to defend, the proximity to the swamps allowed bountiful hunting, and the interior depths of the cave were a perfect place to incubate eggs. Due to the lengthy lifespan of the species many people say that the matriarch is still there, and since the many years have past, an impressive bale of tortons must inhabit the caves by now."

A pygmy torton lurking in the cave

A female torton which growth was naturally stunted from birth once found her way into this cave. She found it a suitable environment to lay eggs and gave rise to the the impressive pack of tortons that later inhabited the cave. Many years later, during the Galactic Civil War, rumors said that the matriach still lived in the cave. A biologist published an article about the cave on the HoloNet by the time of the Battle of Yavin.[2]

Circa 1 ABY,[3] a spacer visited the cave and found the weapon known as Darstai'is Sickle.[4]
