    You're thinking of Talz, @Mistress_Renata - I would also suggest Moroffs. But I think we're all under. 3 metres is really tall. Kaminoans are probably the closest. Hutts if they could stretch their full length into height haha.

    Thanks for the suggestions but as @Kurisan said "I think we're all under. 3 metres" beside the Hutts and maybe the Killiks, most of the suggestions have been more around 2 to 2,3 (maybe 2,5) meters

    So female sharks are larger then male, that's good to know. Do we know of any other notable differences between male and female sharks?

    Based on this, I immediately thought of "Abortistan" for if you were visiting the place, and had to cancel in a hurry; especially if your flight was diverted within sight of the airport.

    The details can be species-specific, but in general female sharks also have thicker and rougher skin, and male sharks have a pair of claspers beside the pelvic fins which are used for mating.

    with the definition of bimaristan, now I'm pretty sure (75 percent) that -stan means place in Arabic.

    It does mean "place", but in Persian, not in Arabic. I believe it's also used in Turkish with the same meaning, although that could be because Turkish uses the Persian name of countries (for instance Greece is called Yunanistan in Turkish, meaning "land of the Ionian people" whereas in Arabic it's plain Yunan; I don't know what it's called in Persian).

    I'm not sure if "bimaristan" (literally "house of the sick") is still used for hospital in modern Persian. Arabic adopted the word in the Middle Ages, but nowadays it's only used for old buildings that used to be hospitals in times past, not for modern hospitals. So it's a word you'll find on tourist maps of cities such as Jerusalem or Cairo, or that you could have heard about Aleppo when the bimaristan there was destroyed in 2012, which is why I wondered if people might know it.

    Yes. The only thing is that the story must actually be posted here, you can't just post a link to another site.

    @Chyntuck - I have no idea if this Bimaristan is for a Star Wars story or not.

    If it is for Star Wars, you could change one letter, and have Bomaristan be where Bomarr Monks come from.
