Have you ever wondered about the rather unique architecture of Hutt palaces ?

This is based in Lore (one reference in the book leading to the Clone Wars CG show) : Hutt palaces are heavy on ramps and smooth stone, because Hutts are gasteropods and move better on such surface.

The fine lines on the ground you see ? It's a not-so official reference to another point: it's basically for measuring a Hutt size.

You might be aghast of this as a Human male, but for Hutts, size does matter. Their body size. A Hutt goal in life is to be the largest Hutt possible: the marks on the floor are (apparently) to show to visiting other Hutts about how big your daddy was.

Interesting I never knew that. Good catch
If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

Sounds like Alabama.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.
