Description: Fast-running creatures native to an alien planet known as Hoth, Tauntauns are resistant to the cold temperatures of their icy world. They were used as beasts of burden by humans, who would actually ride these poor animals to death and then cut them open to use their corpses as warm, moist sleeping bags. Just awful.
