planet Shili. They were the only creature that the Togrutas feared, and could attack and destroy settlements and villages. Togrutas often hunted this creature and made beautiful necklaces and headdresses out of its teeth. Akul were known for the strength of their jaws. They thrived in captivity, but sometimes developed albinism. Akul often devastated the planetary ecosystems they were introduced to. Akul were captured on Shili and sold to zoos and performers as they are popular show animals and could be trained to perform tricks.
