Aqulish are not that bright and their are the two species the fingered and webbed the fingered being the more aggressive of the species.  As far as it goes any species could with the right training be a very good bounty hunter. Take Zuckas a Gand not very well know as bounty hunter's but their he is. 4-Lom and IG-88 Droids they are able to upgrade sensor's and learn new tactics ad as a droid never forget like living creatures, although an emp can take them down easily.  Bounty hunting is learned you can list many different species and races in the same species and some will excel while others lag behind.  Montross was a Mandalorian, but he was not as good as Fett, Gredo was no good at all, Snoova was a Wookie and a fairly well known and respected hunter.  Boush was good enough to get Leia in to Jabba's Palace with Chewie. So mostly it is who can get their hands on the best equipment in the galaxy, during the Empire I would have to say Humans made the best because the Empire would share information more freely with humans than non-humans.  Humans being in order of the most widely known for bounty hunting Mandalorian, Corelian, Coruscant.  Coruscant is a good place to hale from because in the under-world you can encounter almost any species in the galaxy.

Yes you're completely right.

Twi'leks... yeah, you know, maybe they can strangle someone with their head tails, or distract someone while dancing, or how 'bout I'm just joking?
Heh, maybe it isn't a race... but what about driods? IG-88 was pretty successful, and everyone knows how tough droid assassins can be, just look at how impressively Grievous's magna guards (isn't that what they're called?) can fight. (I'm not talking about weak battle driods!)
And driods can be calculating and intelligent as humans, even if it's only rare occasions..

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

mandalorians are best suited to be bounty hunters

oh!why'd ya slice of mah hand?!

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

I think the Rodians would make great bounty hunters.  With their ruthlessness and skillz,  definetley Rodians.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

Rodians wish they were the best bounty hunters.
But the truth is they're all just trashy little punks.

Greedo was a trashy little punk. Not all Rodians are like that.

Rodians in general pride themselves on being good Bounty Hunters, even going as far as giving out prizes and awards for the best hunters.

I finally bought Tales from Mos Eisley Cantina last night. I knew Greedo wasn't a great hunter but I thought he had done something during his lifetime to make him a redeemable character. I mean Han Solo is good, so getting blown away by him doesn't mean you're a complete loser. He was such a letdown in that book after all I'd heard about Rodians having a culture based around Hunting and fighting.

But yeah, I'd have to go with Barabels(strength,senses,natural body armor,natural hunting instincts), Clawdites( shapeshifting), and humans(adaptability).

If I was totally sane, I wouldn't be as good at my job.

Some droids have emotions, like HK-47, I-5YQ (from Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter) and 4-LOM. Oh, and we can't forgot C-3PO and R2-D2 tongue

But yeah, Droids like IG are excellent for Hunting.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

I think droids lack the adaptability that makes organic species good hunters. They can't think on their feet. And I know droids can make complex calculations in a matter of seconds, but I don't think they possess the ability to perform random,unpredictable acts like biologicals. I don't even think they understand unpredicatable behavior. Just look at  IG-88 in Tales of the Bounty Hunters.

Yes I read that book, interesting point CM54.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

i make the best bounty hunter.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

Mr. T makes the best bounty hunter.

In general, I'd say any species that has adaptability.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

Wookies are interesting to think about, natural furry camoflage, predatory instincts, strength, that roar thingy Chewie always does.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

A female Twi'lek might make a decent assassin. The type who uses infiltration and seduction . But I can't see the average Twi'lek being a good bounty hunter.

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

Rodians are natural hunters
I would have to say the mandalorains simply because of their culture and most of the more infamous bounty hunters are mando's
and about the Taung where alive around 3,963 BBY
this is taken from a web site i found "The Taungs and the thirteen native Human nations, the Battalions of Zhell, eventually battled for control of Coruscant. Though the Zhell were nearly exterminated in a volcanic explosion, they managed to drive the Taungs from Coruscant. Due to the two years of darkness caused by the ash, the Taungs named themselves the Warriors of the Shadow (Dha Werda Verda).

The Taungs fled to Roon, where they remained for thousands of years, until, under the leadership of the legendary Mandalore the First, the Taungs conquered another world which they renamed in honor of their leader, Mandalore. The species as a whole then also took the name, becoming the Mandalorians (or Mando'ade in their native Mando'a).

Eventually, the Mandalorian species became extinct. Much like the Sith species which gave rise to the Sith Order, the name "Mandalorian" became associated with a multi-species organization of warrior clans, who, regardless of species, adhered to the tenets of the Mandalorians. These Mandalorians, who were mostly baseline Humans, held the legacy of the Taungs in high regard."

I highly doubt it was possible for a Taung and  a human to produce offspirng, although i do not doubt that Taung would have adopted human children as their own and into their clans

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

I think it's really cool how the Mandalorians destroy all lines between gender and race.  They unite everyone under one banner.

THIS IS MANDALORE!

Re: What Species Make the Best Bounty Hunter?

Spartans of Star Wars, that's the Mandos.  I like the Mandalorins, simply, as Sev put it, there is no real dominant species among them.  Ech and every one is accepted.  They, simply put, ROCK!!!!

from what i have read in KT blogs the mando's are based more upon the celts that the spartans

the spartans where elitists and incest was common among them to keep the spartan bloodline pure... from what i have read
