- "Mesa luven! Is berry berry good tongue-grabben. Yousa find only in one placen... In the mud under the perlote tree!"
- ―Jar Jar Binks, describing slug-beetles
The slug-beetle were a species of blue, winged beetle that lived on the planets Naboo and Tatooine. On Naboo, they lived exclusively amongst the roots of the perlote tree, which grew only in the world's eastern swamps. Gungans could eat the insects whole, and they were a favorite snack of Senator Jar Jar Binks.
