The bordok is a vaguely equinoid herbivore native to the forest moon of Endor. It is used by Ewoks as a pack animal and a mount when tamed. Very sure-footed, and in spite of their size, they are capable of carrying very large loads.

Although somewhat similar in appearance to horses, bordoks are not true equines. They have upward-curving horns that are short on young and female bordoks but can grow to larger size on an adult male. Bordoks also have split hooves that help them climb through the trees of their arboreal home.

There are two species of bordoks: The lesser bordok grew to no more than 1.5 meters tall at the shoulder. The rarer greater bordok can reach twice this size. Both species are fairly intelligent, and are not startled easily. However, they do instictually become more skittish at night due to the various nocturnal predators that stalk the moon's surface.

Adult bordoks are extremely protective of their young, and when domesticated, over their master as well. Young bordoks are commonly taken as pets and often developed a life-long bond with their owner. Princess Kneesaa had a pet baby lesser bordok named Baga.
