Biology and appearance
Splox were large, quadrupedal insects that inhabited Bogano, a planet in the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories. Splox had a pair of small, thin, sprite-like wings that allowed them to hover over the wetlands and mesas of their homeworld. Additionally, splox had appendages located below their eyes, and their orange bodies were covered in blue shells with pointed ends. When attacked, splox could contort their shape to quickly stagger their enemies, providing time for other splox to strike.
An omnivorous species, splox usually lived in packs, and although non-sentient, they were known to coordinate attacks to overwhelm their prey. One such prey was the bogling, a type of tunneling creature.
Around 14 BBY, the human Jedi Cal Kestis traveled to Bogano and discovered a dead splox. Using psychometry, Kestis determined that the splox had been killed after attempting to raid a nest of boglings. During his time on the planet, Kestis fought and killed several splox with his lightsaber.
