Slig by RingmasterBent on DeviantArt

The Slig was a genetically engineered hybrid created by the Bene Tleilax. The creature was a cross between a giant slug and a pig.


The animal was considered ugly, even disgusting, with multiple mouths and skin that excreted a slimy and noxious residue. However, it was bred domestically for its meat, which was sweet, tender, and highly sought after by many across the Known Universe.

Probably for religious reasons, the Tleilaxu did not eat the slig. However, they had no qualms with allowing powindah to pollute themselves with the unclean meat of the slig.

Emperor Shaddam Corrino IV loved to eat slig, and the resident of the Imperium called it "the sweetest meat this side of heaven."
