"I don't think it's lethal, trooper."
— Anakin Skywalker

Nelvaanian Squirrels are a species of land-based rodent indigenous to the glaciers of planet Nelvaan. They have noticeably raccoon-like markings made up of three shades of gray. They are buck-toothed, beady-eyed and are non-lethal, although this may not be common knowledge as at least one Clone Trooper had no idea of their lack of lethality.
