The Ramurans are a sentient arboreal insectoid species. They have large red compound eyes, with each facet responsible for a different aspect of vision (such as motion or the fine details of nearby objects.) They have large mandibles, and a soft, bristly carapace, mottled green in color. They walk on two legs, and have four arms with which they could use tools or brachiate through the jungles of their homeworld. Since they were used to hanging upside-down in trees, they were resistant to the disorientation and motion sickness which afflicted some species in zero-gravity conditions.
