Tie for Varactyl and Rancor.

Hopefully we'll get to use them as mounts one day.

I do like thrantas, and they get a bonus for actually being mounts, sorta, but I still squee a little every time I see varactyls. C'mon, a color assortment of varries would make a great minipet set...

On a whim, I'd answer Rancor. After a second thought, I like Veractyls and Acklays too.
But definitely not Bormus. Take an elephant, take a bacteria, mix them, and you get a Bormu.

But I've always been wondering... why most of beasts (the ones that are not already in the movies) are monstruous ?
I know it's a different galaxy and time, but yet why ?
Especially salky "dogs". According to the Huttball sponsoring, it seems they're like pets... but when looking at them, let's say, in Cademimu... urk ! Who could take them as pets ?

I'm sorta torn between Rancor and Uxibeast, for different reasons.

Rancor because, well, other than the fact that they're frackin' sweet, I still remember the first one I spotted roaming free on Belsavis many, many moons ago (on my first character). I stopped running around and just stared at the hulking beast for a minute before actually saying (out-loud), "Yeah, I'll have me a piece of that..." * Was the first time I remember using my CE Holocamera to take a shot of the kill, before harvesting it's bioanalysis gooey center.

Uxibeast simply because... well, I don't know why, really, lol. Every time I see one of those spiky cows, I exclaim, "UXI!", and have to run my speeder through them. Same goes for the Icetrompers on Hoth (well, the speeder thing; I don't cry out "uxi" when I run through the trompers; that would be just plain weird! )

So, probably Rancor, because there's nothing particularly special about the Uxibeast, but that won't stop me from charging through them.

* This was quickly followed by (again, out-loud), "For LUUUUKE!!" as I attacked the beast

Acklays are pretty fun, especially when you use them to storm Thanaton's warehouse. That was a good day.

The dinosaurs or mesa beasts or whatever they're called on Makeb. I durn near walked right into a champion-level one on my first time through the planet, stopped, backed up and just stared in shock for a few moments. I think I actually said "Dude, what?" out loud. Followed by "Okay, who let InGen loose in the Star Wars universe?"

Bormu are interesting: behemoths that appear to be a mixture of Hippopotamus and Millipede.

Actually, my Avatar since March 2013 has been a Bormu
