Star Wars: Lost Legend
The Mantellian Savrips were a species of large, sentient natives to Ord Mantell. They had hunched-over statures, leathery skin, snake-like heads, and arms long enough to drag on the ground.
Not much is known through personal contact, but much is told through second hand stories. Two definite characteristics of the Savrip aare that they are a force to be reckoned with, and have settlements. Due to Imperial intervention, most of the Savrip population has been reduced drastically.
Most went into hiding on the planet while a good few left the planet completely. Now, without Imperials hunting them for food and sport, the species has begun to readjust to being free instead of cowering from Imperial command.
