Tauntauns are 2.5 m (8.2 ft) tall bipeds, indigenous to the icy planet of Hoth. Tauntauns are covered with white fur and have downturned horns, four nostrils, and a foul body odor. They subist off lichen found in hoarfrost as well as eating mushrooms and other fungi found in ice caves.

Tauntauns were commonly used as pack animals during the Rebel Alliance's stay on Hoth. Tauntauns were also used as patrol mounts when it was learned that the Rebel Alliance's own vehicles could not cope with the cold very well.
