The only major differences between the two wampa species was that the wampas of Hoth had adapted to their surroundings with heavy fur coats to survive the harsh climate of the ice world; the swamp wampas, in comparison, had lighter fur coats due to their native warm climate and were found in the swamps and marshes of Dromund Kaas.
The two species were so similar that scientists believed swamp wampas may have directly descended from ice wampas.
