Published in 2001 and written by Terryl Whitlatch and Bob Carrau, this hardcover comes in at 175 pages with not a single page lacking wonderful full colored illustrations of countless creatures from both the Star Wars movies, and Expanded Universe. A welcome touch is that 'Wildlife' is written from an in-universe perspective, meaning that it's as if the author is actually a denizen and observer of that galaxy far far away...
'Wildlife' features everything from cute creatures like Voorpaks and Blarths to some of the nastiest predators such as the massive Sando Aqua Monster of Naboo and the giant Gorax of Endor. It also showcases some great examples of what typical life is like in Star Wars, with both a pet shop and circus being seen.
With over 9 planets of bizarre animals, Wildlife is a fantastic addition to any Star Wars fan's collection, making it an EU gem!
