Really, George, what the hell is this? What were you thinking? When I first saw Return Of The Jedi, this seemed a really cool monster – was too young to know better – but now it just seems stupid.
Why is it named for the old English for ‘Lake of Blood’?
What does the Sarlac live on in the wild? It’s a huge animal, I’m frankly surprised there is enough for it to eat in the desert, it must require a fair calorific intake to keep it going…
…And since it’s basically a big funnel in the middle of the desert, surely it would fill up with sand?
How do Sarlac mate? It doesn’t look as if they can move – if they can how does Jabba know where it is? – so how does it find a mate? What are the mechanics of a Sarlac coupling? The mind boggles.
This is another example of stupid ideas from the Star Wars world.
