Utapau is a desolate world in the Outer Rim. There is nearly no vegetation on the surface and the natives species live in sinkholes. The sinkholes have water at their bottoms which provide the conditions for floral life to grow. The native humanoid species, like the Pau'ans have tamed some of the native fauna. Native creatures include the dactilions, flying fauna along with the lizard-like varactyls and the predatory aquatic Nos Monsters living on the bottom pools in the sinkholes.
