The Wampa is a large, furry snow creature native to the planet Hoth. It walks upright like a man, and has two arms and two legs. Its fur is white to blend into the snow of its home planet. It also has large claws on its front and back paws, and grey horns on either side of its head. It is carnivorous, and possesses sharp teeth for cutting into its victims. The Wampa's primary food source is the Tauntaun.
In Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, while Luke Skywalker was riding his Tauntaun on scout duty for the Rebel Alliance on Hoth, his Tauntaun smelled something coming. Suddenly, Luke and his mount were attacked by a Wampa. The creature killed the beast, knocked Luke unconscious, and dragged them both back to its lair.
Later, Luke awakened to find himself hanging upside down from the ceiling of the Wampa's ice cave home. The Wampa was in the process of devouring Luke's Tauntaun; Luke was to be next. Freezing and barely awake, Luke used the Force to grab his lightsaber, which had fallen to the ground from his belt, and cut himself loose from the icy ceiling. This alerted the Wampa, which ran to attack Luke. Quickly, Luke Turned at the Wampa and sliced off its right arm. As the creature writhed in agony, Luke quickly made his escape from the cave.
