There are tons of fascinating, totally unique aliens inhabiting every corner of the Star Wars galaxy. Some, like the species that are native to Tatooine, get plenty of screen time and tend to be remembered quite well. Others, like the Gungans, get a lot of grief from fans who feel like they don't add a ton to the universe as a whole.
Alien species have been introduced gradually throughout the history of Star Wars, but the Mon Calamari and Quarren species have both existed since the days of the original trilogy, and have popped up throughout canon in the years since. Both residing on the water-covered world of Mon Cala (also known as Dac), these two factions have been at each other's throats for centuries by way of political turmoil and civil war. Despite their long history within the franchise, there's still plenty that even dedicated Star Wars fans may not know about these two species. Take a look down below and be sure to vote up the most interesting thing you learned about the Quarren and Mon Calamari!
