"It's those womp rats again. Are they trying to chew up all the cables on the planet or what?"
―Luke Skywalker, after shooting a womp rat[src]

Womp rats were creatures native to Tatooine.[1] Considered to be a pest, they nested in the desert and would sometimes gather in swarms to attack the inhabitants of Tatooine. The smell of dead womp rats was known to attract krayt dragons.[2] During the Clone Wars, when Anakin Skywalker was having trouble getting information out of Dr. Nuvo Vindi, Obi-Wan Kenobi told him to have patience, as there was "more than one way to skin a womp rat."[3]

Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, when Col Takbright protested that the two-meter target on the Death Star was impossible to hit, even for a computer, Luke Skywalker countered that he used to "bulls-eye" womp rats in his T-16 Skyhopper back home and that they were not much bigger than two meters.[1] Luke Skywalker could hit the most of the creatures of any of his group of friends on a T-16 Skyhopper run through Beggar's Canyon, though he considered them hairy, monstrous pests.[4]
