Zutton, also known as Snaggletooth, was a Snivvian present in Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina on the planet Tatooine during the standard year 0 BBY. While walking the streets of Mos Eisley, Snaggletooth wore a red tunic over a black shirt along with light-colored pants and boots. The Snivvian had light-colored skin, black eyes, and brown hair. In 35 ABY, Snaggletooth was present on Pasaana during the Aki-Aki's Festival of the Ancestors.
Behind the scenesEdit
The name "Snaggletooth" dates back to the original Kenner Star Wars toy line, in which an action figure based on the Snivvian was given the name. Later sources which are now identified as belonging to the Star Wars Legends timeline noted that the name Snaggletooth was actually a nickname, and that the male Snivvian's real name was Zutton. The "Zutton" name was later canonized with the release of the canon guide book Star Wars: Alien Archive. Meanwhile, the first canon source to provide the name Snaggletooth was the Star Wars: Card Trader mobile video game. The character is otherwise unnamed in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
Although the character in the film wears a red-colored shirt, the original Kenner toy featured blue clothing. The figure's clothing was changed to red during the toy line's production run, as was the figure's height. Snaggletooth's general appearance later served as inspiration for Katt Mol, a Snivvian character who appeared in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television episode "Padawan Lost."
