Ruggers are non-sapient creatures native to the forest moon of Endor. Small-sized herbivores, they have four paws with suction-like foot pads that allow them to climb trees easily. They also have a long tail, likely to balance their weight; and their body is covered by long fluffy hair. Ruggers have large eyes and ears, and a short snout. They use their sharp incisors to open hard-shelled nuts. They also feed on berries and other small fruits. Ruggers hibernate during the winter.
There are two main varieties of Ruggers: the Forest Rugger, that lives in trees and has green or white fur; and the Plains Rugger, that lives in grasslands and has yellow fur.
