The dune runner (also spelt as dune-runner) was a swift, agile, nomadic, small and savage creature native to the desert world of Zz'gash. Exposure to Zz'gash's harsh weather made dune runners a fairly adaptable species, and their leathery skin developed seven distinct layers with specialized humidity-retention ducts. These prevented moisture loss, while still allowing fluid circulation to keep the dune runner's body temperature at an appropriate level. They apparently had dorsal fins on their backs. It is known that they possessed a tail with a spike that portruded from the tip.
