Spider-sponges were a type of creature found on the planet Geonosis. Nests of spider-sponges lived in the air vent tunnel between the power generator hub and the fusion reactor in the Geonosian droid factories[1] in 22 BBY.[2] The creatures survived on the toxic waste gases produced by the factory.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

In the new Star Wars canon, spider-sponges were mentioned in the 2016 reference book Star Wars: Complete Locations. The material mentioning spider-sponges was reprinted[1] from the 2003 Star Wars Legends reference book Inside the Worlds of Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, which was written by Simon Beecroft and Curtis Saxton and marked the first mention of the creatures.[3]
