The scurrier was a rodent native to Tatooine, and was considered a pest by the locals of Mos Eisley and Mos Espa. Scurriers had horns on their heads. Those of a male were thick and curved, while those of a female were thin and straight.

Scurriers were small omnivores with an appetite for garbage. They would scavenge in trash heaps in search of food and material for their nests. They were known to find their way onboard docked freighters and transports - thus propagating the scurrier population across the galaxy; they were even found on stations like Outland Station. Worse, scurriers had a penchant for picking apart machinery; a trait that was hardly welcome on a cargo- or passenger-filled transport.

Apart from this dangerous habit, scurriers posed only a marginal threat to sentients. Though they would fiercely defend their territory, scurriers usually fled at the first sign of danger (say, a passing landspeeder) able only to call upon a high-pitched squeak and a painful bite to use against advancing predators. Their bite sometimes carried an unusual disease known as Scurrier Disease. In spite of this, scurrier tips were still a Hutt delicacy, referred to as "scuzzi spits" in their language.

Scurriers traveled in packs of around thirty, and were known to appropriate profogg nests for their own uses.

Behind the scenes

"What was that? Guess it was a scurrier."

The scurrier was a new creation for the Star Wars Special Edition. The computer-generated model was based on that of the velociraptor created for Jurassic Park.

In LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, scurriers are mistaken for womp rats.

In Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, when you approach a stormtrooper who doesn't immediately see you, he might rationalize Kyle's sounds as a scurrier.
