Lactran zoo. Many different species were encountered in specially created ecologies. They included a sea creature, in thermal waters, that was stunned, a dinosaur-like beast similar to those on Canopus III that absorbed phaser energy until killed and pterodactyl-like birds similar to the dragons on Maravel. An Earth environment was added for the Ariel survivors. (The Eye of the Beholder. [TAS]).

Lactrans. Sentient 20-foot long slug-like creatures with long three-fingered trunks. They were a highly intelligent, telepathic race living in a large city.
