ALL of the Trandoshan Jedi in Star Wars | Reptile Jedi

Although Trandoshan Jedi and Force sensitive individuals are uncommon in the Star Wars, several individuals are known to exist including High Republic era Jedi Master Sskeer. Hailing from the Mid Rim planet Trandosha, Trandoshans are heavy and strong bipedal reptilian humanoids with the ability to regenerate limbs and eyes sensitive enough to see in the infrared range. The species shed their skin periodically.
