The Snogars were a race of creatures native to the ice world of Ota, where they were constantly repairing their heating machines to stay warm. These shaggy humanoids were a primitive race that have devolved from a highly-technological race. These ancient ancestors were known among the Snogars as the Old Ones, and supposedly developed the heating machines. The Snogars barely survived life on Ota. Sometime follwoing the Battle of Yavin, they were able to capture Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett, and demanded that the two fix their machinery. The two escaped, but returned to the Snogar city to rescue Han Solo. In the ensuing battle, the Mole appeared and pinned Fett to a wall with a magnet while the others escaped from the Snogars.
