...Is there one? I'm kinda curious about sarlaccs at the moment...
Thats the thing that ate Boba, right?
I looked around and I cannot find anything that cites a possible age limit. All I can see is that the digestion cycle can last up to 1000 years, but nothing beyond that.
I would assume that they would live about 2000-3000 years, but that is a total guess on my part and backed up by nothing.
I also find myself wondering what baby sarlaccs would look like. Are there baby sarlaccs?
Edit: Found some info:
Sarlaaci are found on many remote worlds throughout the galaxy. They thrive most effectively in moist environments, though some are known to live in such inhospitable places as airless moons and the arid wastes of Tatooine. Depending on environmental conditions, an adult sarlacc may grow to dozens of metres across, or may have an appature of as little as a metre. Sarlaaci propagate via spores which drift through interstellar space, though how the planet-bound adults release the spores into space remains a mystery.
Star Wars Tales #6 (comic) had a story on the life cycle of a Sarlacc. You can see a short detail here on TOS. The tale is reprinted in the 2nd Tales tpb, I think. (I'd get up to check but the cat is curled up on my legs asleep). Tales are Infinities and not canon but the story is still pretty good.
Sarlaccs have a lifespan of 20,000-50,000 years.
I recall hearing that the Tatooine Sarlacc was just a baby 4000 years pre-CT.
Hmm...considering how horriblee Sarlaccs are, you'd think that people would toss a couple of thermal detonators at the things when they show up in the neighborhood.
Agreed. Although I wouldn't want to stand too close to a Sarlacc to throw a bunch in. Orbital bombardment of the position seems like a better idea.
Why not just get a couple of skiffs and use 'em as a base to drop the bombs. No need for oribtal strikes, military intellegence might get a decimal point in the wrong spot and destroy the Mos Eisley Cantina. Then were would we all go to wet our whistles? Moe's?
Considering the size of the thing, you have to assume it doesn't get that big just from eating the occasional passer by..
Maybe it's a lesser of two evils thing, like leaving a spider alone so it will take of any mosquitos or other air born pests..
Perhapps the Sarlacc helps take care of Bantha over-pupulation, or maybe they snack on Kyrat Dragons, or the occasional Tuscan Raider
Much as I hate the GODV series, there's a nice picture of the Sarlacc eating a Tusken and a Bantha. (Krayts would be way too big)
And it wouldn't be much of an orbital mistake. The Sarlacc is in the middle of nowhere, far, far away from the cantina.
Well, it's not like it was hurting anything out there in the desert. As long as no one goes near it (and that seemed like a pretty deserted area), they should be fine.
