|Greater krayt dragon|
|Planet of origin|
Greater krayts were massive, growing to 100 meters or more. They required ten legs to support their bulk. Despite their size, greater krayts were rarely encountered because they spent long stretches of time literally swimming through the sand. Greater krayts were known to actually prey upon sarlaccs(a rare treat), though they more commonly hunted banthas. Similar to their smaller kin, the greater krayt dragon developed pearls inside their gizzard, called Dragon pearls. However, these pearls were much larger and more valuable than standard krayt dragon pearls.
The spine and skull seen in A New Hope is supposed to be that of a greater krayt; however, the skull is comparatively much shorter and bulkier than that of the later illustrations of the creature. A possible explanation is that this was a juvenile as the large ocular cavities may suggest. In the video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on Imperial Kashyyyk, in Ozzik Sturn's private quarters, there is a greater krayt dragon head mounted on the wall.
The greater krayt dragon was a krayt dragon subspecies on Tatooine. It was rarer and larger than the typical canon krayt dragon.
