Tunneling: Vexis snake can construct tunnels, allowing them fast movement below the ground.
Background: The vexis snake was a snake native to the desert world Pasaana. The species burrowed under the sand of Pasaana, and oils excreted from it’s skin hardened the sand it passed through to form an ever-expanding network of tunnels.
In 35 ABY, after sinking into the underground tunnel system through the Shifting Mires, the Jedi Padawan Rey and her Resistance companions Finn, Poe Dameron, C-3PO and BB-8 encountered a vexis snake during their search for the Bestoon Legacy. At first fearing there was no way out of the tunnels and that the creature was hostile, Rey realized it was injured and use the Force to calm it and heal its wounds. Once restored to health, the creature slithered away and in the process revealed a previously hidden opening to the surface.
