Naeori were an aquatic species native to Draco III, before Human colonisation of the planet.[1] They were rare, and supposedly the size of a 'small island'. Along with other native species, Naeori survived the human terraforming of the planet by descending into the depths of the ocean, where they were safe from hunting.[1] Naeori were often fed on by "bat-shaped" leeches.[2]

On the rare occasion when they surfaced, they would be hunted by humans such as Edward Buck's uncle, Lou.[1] They had to be hunted with shocknets, as any other methods would drive them back into the ocean, and bombs would render the merchandise useless.[1]
