Swoothu, also known as Swhuthu, are flying beetlefur creatures native to Thra. They are noted to have strange sleeping patterns, though are used as couriers by many Gelfling clans in exchange for food and shelter.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Swoothu was created as part of a 'create a creature' competition on The dark crystal website. The creature, created by a man named Jeff Brown, won said competition and in turn was referenced in J. M. Lee's young adult novel series.
