Zalaacas are large omnivorous creatures indigenous to the planet of Naboo. About the size of a Horse, but much longer, thanks to their long, laterally flattened tail; Zalaacas are aggressive pack hunters and are known to hunt larger beings, like the Kaadu.
Like most Naboo creatures, Zalaacas are excellent swimmers, although they are terrestrial. They're distant relatives of the huge Sando Aqua Monster. Zalaacas are extremely difficult to tame, but Gungans were able to domesticate them, and they are used as mounts.
