Blurrgs are two-legged reptilian beasts that live on the plains of the forest moon of Endor. They are used by the Sanyassan Marauders living on that moon to do their heavy labor. The Sanyassans originally used them as attack creatures, but they were too slow and calm while carrying cargo, so they used them as beasts of burden instead. They controlled them with spiked chainbridles, riding on their backs with stiff saddles.

The Blurrg's huge mouth eats almost anything edible, perfect for clearing savanna grass, weeds, and saplings. Blurrgs are strong, fast and stupid—so much so that they walk right into small trees and knock them down. The egg-laying creatures usually produce five or six babies at a time. In their early years babies stay very close to their mothers for protection from Boar Wolves. Blurrgs communicate through a series of roars.

During the Clone Wars, clone troopers mounted on blurrgs were used as heavy cavalry on various worlds. Twi'leks somehow acquired dozens of blurrgs, and used them as beasts of burden and also as riding mounts against CIS forces during the Battle of Ryloth. There is also a location on the forest moon of Endor named Blurrg's Isle, which seems to be the home of a significant population of blurrgs.
