Flora And Fauna
Flora And Fauna 1. Tach
The tach is a tree-dwelling primate native to the planet Kashyyyk. These friendly creatures can often be found on the ground searching for overripe fruits.
Flora And Fauna 2. Spider Web
It's estimated that at least 15% of Kashyyyk's forests are covered in wyyyschokk webs. The threat of wyyyschokks is so common that Wookiee children are taught to defend themselves against the spiders from as young as three years old.
Flora And Fauna 3. Wyyyschokk Eggs
One wyyyschokk can lay up to 1,000 eggs each year. With a combination of webbing, saliva and a unique secretion from lymphatic nodes under each leg, they create incredibly sturdy egg sacs that deter predators. When a young wyyyschokk is fully developed, they can spend as many as 5 days eating their way out of the shell, slowly wearing it down with their venom. They emerge ravenous, ready to attack any prey in sight.
Flora And Fauna 4. Lung Plant
When threatened, the lung plant fills its body cavity with air to appear larger. If a slyyyg still tries to graze on its leaves, the lung plant instantly releases the held air to force it back.
Flora And Fauna 5. Mushblooms
Mushblooms are a delicacy on Kashyyyk, but must be picked before the fungi reach maturity. Once the bulbous, bioluminescent fruiting body has formed they are highly poisonous. Incidents of mushbloom poisoning are rare, but often fatal.
Flora And Fauna 6. Shyyyo Bird
Shyyyo birds are so rarely seen that they were once thought to be creatures of legend. The Shyyyo's body shape and feathers enable it to glide across long distances without expending much energy. Since the Shyyyo conserves energy so well it rarely leaves its nest - experts say a typical adult may hunt once per week. Their diet of slyyygs and wyyyschokks led to its depiction as a protector of both the Wookiees and wroshyr forests. Catching a glimpse of the Shyyyo is a rare blessing that guarantees peace for the viewer.
