Planet of origin


A fanback egg

The Fanback was a cold-blooded amphibian from Naboo.

Each fanback had a big, dorsal spine which gives it its name.

Fanbacks lived mostly in water, although they went to surface to lay their large, tough-shelled eggs in the mud. After that, fanbacks usually remained in the surface for a time to protect the eggs from egg-eaters, including peko pekos. Fanbacks were carnivores and had no problems eating the egg-eaters themselves.

Soon after 32 BBY, the Gungans transported fanbacks and other animals to the moon of Ohma-D'un to try and establish an ecosystem. Most of the flora and fauna of Ohma-D'un, however, was destroyed by Separatists during the Battle of Ohma-D'un.

Behind the scenes

The fanback resembles an extinct Earth species known as a dimetrodon.
