brain juices or not, but it looks like an illithid.

	That would probably be a Quarren.  Lives on Mon Calamari in cities
under the sea.  IIRC, on the whole xenophobic (or at least extremely
distrustful).

2). Then there is the giff-like creature that was eaten by the Rancor
shortly after Luke was tossed into the pit.  Except for the two rather large
canine teeth protruding from the lower jaw, that creature reminded me of a
giff.

	That was a Gammorrean.  IIRC, lives in matriarchal tribes.  No known
homeworld.

	As for other space-faring races in SW, there's the Calamari, who built
cruise ships before converting them to warships (the huge Calamari Cruisers)
for the Rebellion.  There's also the Sullustan.  Lando's copilot in the attack
on the Death Star is one.  The prefer a thinner environment.
	A good book that just lists all the info of the SW universe is The
Guide to the Star Wars Universe by Bill Slavicesk (sp?). It's not great, but
it'll have pictures for most races and at least a short blurb for all listed,
and I believe there is a list off all races in the front.

	Sorry I don't have my books with me, or I would have had a ot more
detailed responses.
