Gentle and strong, rontos are favored pack animals for Tatooine's Jawas. Travelers to the desert planet's settlements routinely see rontos swaying under the weight of their cargoes and Jawa passengers.
Jawas often use rontos as pack animals, particularly when they need to transport goods into Tatooine's towns, where the streets are too narrow for the great wheels of sandcrawlers.
Tatooine's high desert plateaus are home to herds of rontos. Their herd mentality makes them loyal beats of burden when trained and cared for properly by Jawas or other masters.
