Knobby white spider


Planet of origin


The Knobby white spider was a large landspeeder-sized arachnid-like organism native to the swamp world of Dagobah.

Luke Skywalker faces a knobby white spider.

It had a large, lumpy body with a bloated, bulbous head, eight gnarled legs and one large stinger used to capture and sedate its prey.

One of the most bizarre organisms on Dagobah, the knobby white spider was in fact a mobile root that was part of the gnarltree's life cycle. Composed primarily of calcified wood, it would break free of its parent tree to roam the swamps and devour animals. After gathering enough nutrients, the spider would find a clear spot to anchor its legs, which would eventually transform into roots that allow the spider to grow into a towering tree.

In addition to the very large ones, there were also some smaller, knee-height ones, Luke Skywalker ended up facing a number of these in his training, though they gave him little trouble.[1]
