Trandoshans (T'doshok in their language) were large, bipedal reptilian humanoids from the planet Trandosha (or Dosha). This species had super-sensitive eyes that could see into the infrared range and the ability to regenerate lost limbs, albeit very slowly, and were anatomically built heavier and stronger than Humans and most other humanoids. Trandoshans would also periodically shed their skin like many other reptilians. However unlike some other reptilian humanoids, such as the Barabels and the Ssi-ruuk, Trandoshans had no tails. The Trandoshans were a warlike species who had a long history of conflict with other races most notably the Wookiees. In fact, the Trandoshans were one of the first species the Wookiees encountered.
As a species, they were renowned across the galaxy for great strength. This is evidenced by several members of other species boasting physical prowess and power by having defeated a Trandoshan, either in battle or in a contest of strength.
