Here’s an odd, and slightly nerdy sort of question.
But I want to pose it seriously, rather than as a joke.
What does a Wookiee eat?
I don’t think it was specified in the movies, so we can only guess, and this could be a nice exercise for our minds to think about in the wee hours.
Normally when a “new” animal is found, the teeth and other parts of the body are examined, and it’s possible to get a basic idea of what the creature ate… a good example would be dinosaurs, we have not seen living dinosaur, but their bodies can often reveal whether they ate meat or greens, or a combination of both.
Teeth not only evolved for eating, but also evolved for fighting, Tusks are a good example. and some types of monkey have very long teeth, which are for display more than anything else.
So although a Wookiee may appear to be a meat eater, perhaps they’re not.
And yes, we all saw that Holiday Special, but let’s not colour our thoughts with that too much.
So, Fingers to chins, let us speculate.
