Description: The Tatooine sand ape was a species of large reptilian predatorial six-limbed creature that lived on Tatooine.
The Tatooine sand ape was a reptile covered in thick, armored brownish scales and a face with two white eyes and large off-white teeth. It's most notable trait was its six heavily muscular limbs that functioned as both arms and legs, allowing it to adopt both a bipedal and quadrupedal stance depending on the situation. The creature could be found buried beneath the sand on the planet Tatooine.
Shortly after the fall of the Galactic Empire and taken prisoner by Tusken Raiders, a Rodian and the bounty hunter, Boba Fett, were forced to dig for black melons buried underneath the sand of Tatooine. The Rodian inadvertently dug up the creature's arm and immediately the creature lunged, grabbing the Rodian by the throat, and began to drag Fett, who was connected to his fellow prisoner by a chain on the ankle. The Tusken youngling and his massiff charged the behemoth. The creature grabbed the massiff by the throat, knocking it away before crushing and smothering the Rodian in the sand.
The creature began stalking towards the Tusken ready to attack before Fett wrapped his chain around its throat. Despite its desperate attempt to grab him, Fett managed to tighten his grasp, ultimately asphyxiating the creature. After this encounter, the youngling presented the deceased creature's decapitated head as a trophy to his tribe, earning Fett respect from the tribe's chief.
