David: Rancor Spotting #16 (Legends)

Star Wars: The Ultimate Visual Guide by Ryder Windham, pages 99 and 123

The Ultimate Visual Guide presents wonderful pictorial coverage of all six Star Wars films, including a little bit about rancors.

A birthday gift to Jabba from Bib Fortuna, the fearsome rancor is a semisentient beast who dwells in a pit below the crime lord’s court.

Rod Puppet
To create the rancor monster for Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, creature designer Phil Tippett used a 61-centimeter (2 feet) tall, foam-rubber rod puppet, controlled by three puppeteers.
