Palukoo

A palukoo

"Whoa! What's that?! What is that, a spider or a dog?!"

The palukoo was a large arachnid indigenous to the Bajoran moons.

During the Occupation of Bajor, Bajoran Resistance members often survived on a diet of palukoo.

In 2370, Kira Nerys and Jadzia Dax encountered a palukoo while passing through the caverns of the Lunar V base, searching for a sub-impulse raider. Jadzia jokingly thought the Resistance fighters kept them as pets, and sang about them around campfires before discovering their true purpose – food. (DS9: "The Siege")

The actual prop used was a battery operated spider toy Joe Longo bought at a yard sale. Its appearance was modified by makeup artist Michael Westmore. Joseph C. Sasgen modified the toy. (The Art of Star Trek, p. 119); Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 122)
