This may be a silly question, but is Boss Nass a different species than the Gungans? What's the deal with him?

He's a different species of Gungan, but I can't think of what type of Gungan he is off the top of my head. I'll try and dig up the info from somewhere :).

Here's what the SW.com databank says about Nass:


Unlike most of the Gungans in Otoh Gunga, Nass is of the old Ankura lineage, denoted by his green skin and hooded eyes.

Cool, thanks Pendo. I saw something about Boss Nass in another thread. It got me thinking....I don't remember seeing any other green Gungans in the movie.:D

It would have been nice to see some more Gungans similar to Boss Nass. Then he wouldn't seem so out of place :).

I just assumed gungans had common physical mutations. All the same species, yet can have a variety of bodily characteristics, like Tarpals and Nass showed.

And then he was also older and fatter than most gungans. So beyond the facial differnces, the body I assumed was Nass's own creation from overeating.

Same here. I just thought looked different because he was fat. I thought the green skin was just a different color. Jar Jar is orange. Tarpals is gray, the soldiers are tan, and Nass is green.

Jar Jar, Tarpals, and all of the rest have a long "duck bill" type face,their eyes are raised on stalks, and long floppy ears. Boss Nass has a wide flat face, his eyes are not raised, and I don't see any ears on him. Basically, Boss Nass looks kind of like a frog, which is what caught my attention in the first place.

Nass' ears can be seen from behind.


Here's some more on the different Gungan species I found that the official site:


There are at least two distinct Gungan races. The Otolla Gungan is characterized by a tall and lanky build, long ears (or haillu), inquisitive eyes atop short stalks, and a pronounced bill. The Ankura Gungan is an older race, with a stockier build, shorter bill and haillu, and hooded eyes. Gungans are hatched from eggs in water cradles, and are born as tadpoles. They quickly grow limbs and are able to walk on land within a standard month of hatching.
