"Spiders don't frighten you because most spiders are are no bigger than your hand. These spiders, webweavers? Big as you and me."
―Han Solo[src]

Webweavers were a large species of spiders indigenous to the planet Kashyyyk. They were capable of devouring humans. Wookiees hunted and ate the spiders.

During the liberation of Kashyyyk[1] in 5 ABY,[2] Han Solo, Chewbacca, and their allies released a swarm of webweaver spiders aboard the Imperial Star Destroyer Dominion. The spiders proceeded to kill Rear Admiral Urian Orlan and several stormtroopers. This allowed Han and his team to force their way aboard the ship's bridge.[1]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 Aftermath: Life Debt
  2. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Endor to 4 ABY and further dates Shara Bey and Kes Dameron's move to Yavin 4 in 5 ABY. The move is placed six months after the Battle of Endor by Before the Awakening. Since Aftermath: Life Debt is set just after Shadow Fall, which takes place around six months after the battle, the events of Life Debt must also occur in 5 ABY, around six months after the Battle of Endor.
