The Hutts are a race and a society in the Star Wars universe.
Hutts are large gastropod lifeforms measuring up to four meters in length with two arms for manipulation. Hutts are functional hermaphrodites and carry their young in pouches. Hutts are creatures with very long lifespans and in general live for centuries.
