Shaaks were plump and big herd animals who lived on the grasslands of Naboo. They were herbivorous. Because of their fat body's and their short legs they had the ability to float on the water. It was hard to drove on them because of their instability. But some shaak herders like Peppi Bow rode them with ease. Shaaks were one of the few species that, if infected with the Blue Shadow Virus, would die directly. This happened to the shaaks of Peppi Bow after Nuvo Vindi 's Blue Shadow Virus leaked in the water.
