The Argala or Argalans are a sentient species from the planet of Argala.
The Argalans are amphibious beings with large eyes on stalks and beak-like mouths. Their heads were often described as star-shaped, with their eyestalks, beaks, and cheek pouches forming a five-pointed star. Their lungs doubled as internal gills, and they had an acute sense of smell on land or in the water. Their green skins retained humidity, but an Aragalan had to bathe in salt water every thirty hours or so, or their skin would crack open, resulting in internal and external bleeding and death.
They were among the first species to be attacked by the Fen Domar, like the others, they were taken to Earth and some of its colonies.
