Womprats were massive rodents native to Tatooine. Many had nests in Beggar's Canyon, and also in the Jundland Wastes. They were slightly larger than 2 meters, and would probably never have any protection laws for them. It was something to be smiled upon if you took more than one Womprat life while on Tatooine, as they were real pains in the ass. Despite the fact that womprats were considered to be unintelligent, they were very sensitive about their size.  It was extremely offensive to a womprat to call it not much bigger than two meters, or to compare it to something that was two meters exactly.
