The '''Beast in the Mouth of the Mountain''' was an immense, cave-dwelling [[Wikipedia:Arachnid|arachnoid]] apparently indigenous to the forest moon of [[Endor]]. Likely an entire, albeit perhaps rare, species as opposed to a solitary member, the only known Beast was discovered in 19 BBY. This monstrosity destroyed a number of [[B1 Battle Droid]]s as well as [[Clone Trooper]]s before finally succumbing when the Jedi Guardian [[Aayla Secura]] caused the cavern's [[Wikipedia:Stalactite|stalactites]] to collapse onto it, likely crushing its [[Wikipedia:Chitin|chitinous]] [[Wikipedia:Exoskeleton|exoskeleton]]. It was this event that cause Aayla to be worshiped by the local [[Ewok]]s.

While most likely its own species, it may in fact be an unidentified gender, caste, or even metamorphose variation of the [[Arachne]] or the [[Rearing Spider]], or even another still unseen arachnoid. In all likelihood, however, it at least shares a common ancestry with the Rearing Spiders. As eluded to earlier, there is a chance that it also could potentially be a unique organism, having resulted from accidental or purposeful mutation of a Rearing Spider or similar arachoid. At the same time, it may have actually been a survivor of some long-forgotten shipwreck.
