Jabba the Hutt - Star Wars

If Star Wars showed us anything, beware of double-crossing wealthy corpulent slugs. In Return of the Jedi the shear physics of Jabba's immense bulk seem impractical, but the same can be said of the grossly obese in out society. In later depictions in the new Trilogy and enhanced editions, Jabba is show slithering about. Surely, if slugs are give free evolutionary range, a creature like Jabba may come about, especially on lower-gravity planets where slithering locomotion might be more practical with large mass.
