The Kluuzots were a sapient species of arboreal mammals was native to the planet Krann. They evolved from a lemur-like race of creatures, and live within the Black Jungle. They have soft, glowing, amber-colored eyes which were suited for seeing in the deep red light of Krann's four stars. These eyes appear almost fluorescent under normal lighting. The Empire, which harvested innumerable amounts of nova crystals to fund the first Death Star project, attempted to enslave the Kluuzots. The intelligent mammals simply fled deep into the jungle, where they hid until the New Republic came to liberate the planet. They have not pledged any support to the Republic, but the Kluuzots realize that the Republic was not there to enslave them.
