An Acklay is a large non-sapient creature resembling a praying mantis. It is equipped with three eyes and six legs with four digits each, the fourth of which terminates in an elongated scythe-like claw. As a carnivore, it possesses a mouth full of long, sharp teeth. It originated on the planet Vendaxa, but has since adapted to several other environments such as Felucia and Geonosis. One was killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi during the events of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. They can also be found in Star Wars: Battlefront II. They also featured in various locations in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies.
The Asyyyriak lives in the forests of Kashyyyk. It spends most of its time high above the forest floor. It has an elongated head and a pointed snout filled with sharp teeth. It has six legs, which are positioned along its flexible spine to provide a highly maneuverable frame. Each foot has four toes, which end in razor sharp talons. Its body is covered with long brown and green hair, which lies on top of green skin.
Asyyyriaks primarily prey upon avians and other small animals. A few small wookiee children are lost each year because of the Asyyyriak. Asyyyriaks hibernate during cold seasons, and tend to favor a hollow tree trunk as a den.
