The Bakulu are a race in the Galactic Union.

They look like slugs, but are really snails. They can change shells, which are self-contained like spaceships. They are also amphibious. They have nine tentacles, all of which can be used as hands, but all have some other function as well. Three have eyes, two have mouths, two are used for respiration, and two for excrement and reproduction.

They are known through the Union as incredible mechanics and decent pilots
