Photon Spider (1)

The Photon Spider is one of the few surviving creatures found on Varl after the devastation wrought to the planet by the Hutts. The creature is terrible to behold: 4 meters long and covered from mandible to spinneret in hard chitinous armor. In addition to this, the body of a Photon Spider is virtually transparent and the creature exceptionally light-footed, making it a highly effective ambush predator despite its size.

Photon Spiders get their name from their unusual natural weapon, a spinneret capable of firing a bolt of energy similar to that of a blaster set on Stun.
