Merry Whumpets are a species of harmless, non-sapient creatures found throughout the universe, possibly indicating that they were placed on numerous worlds by the Precursors.
They are extremely aware of their surroundings and upon seeing something they see as a threat to their livelihood, starships included, they move at a very swift speed as if greatly frightened by them.
