A Dianoga is a seven-armed, one-eyed squid, originally from the planet Vodran.
The Dianoga is an omnivore. The creature is known best for being the parasite that it is. They can survive in space, and often crawl into a spaceship's garbage hold. Since they digest most of the garbage and feed on it, most ship captains will let them stay instead of throwing them off-board.
A Dianoga can grow to be 10 meters in size. Dianogas are muddy-colored squid-like creatures that thrive in dank environments, patiently waiting for big enough prey that can satisfy its terrible appetite. The creature captures its prey and attempts to drag it into the creatures mouth.
