The Ovan Slyack is a species of predatory frog-like animal found on Ovan. Symbiotically linked with chlorophylic bacteria on its back, the slyack can go without hunting for months, spending days lounging in the sun. When it does hunt, it strikes by leaping on the target and attacking with its long nose-horn. The creature is highly territorial, and is primarily active at night.[1]
