Rakkida - Iris Compiet

Rakkida were lithe predators native to Skarith. They were hairless, quadrupedal carnivores with vestigial wings and large fangs that prevented them from closing their jaws completely. They hunted in highly organized packs, and primarily targeted Mounders and other livestock.[1]

The Skeksis briefly sought to domesticate them, but found them too hard to capture, and those that were caught proved untameable. They were frequently hunted by skekMal, who considered them among the few creatures worthy of his attention.[1]

In the continuity established by Legends of the Dark Crystal, Lahr and Neffi encountered a pack of Rakkida on their way to Lahr's destroyed village. The Rakkida attempted to prey on Lahr's Mounders, but were repelled by Whouf.[2]
