Aduba-3
A planet in the Aduba system with three million citizens. It was mostly covered by desert and plains. The plant life on Aduba-3 grows thorns as forms of protection. Located along the Triellus Trade Route, it is a planet so remote smuggler Han Solo considered it beyond the reach of Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure.

History
Lying on the fringes of Sith Space during the New Sith Wars, the world was initially visited in 1010 BBY by a Sith Lord of the Brotherhood of Darkness. Journeying to Aduba, he created the Behemoth from the World Below on the planet. After the war, the Galactic Republic discovered the world circa 1000 BBY, though the world would not be colonized until 500 BBY as an agriworld. The colonists, followers of the Sacred Way, established farming villages where they harvested maze-stalk and mizzlegritch moss.

Greedy speculators from the Modirin Mining Concern came to the planet and caused a chromium rush by way of mine-seeding. When traders realized there was no fortune to be had on Aduba-3, it lost any appeal it might have had and began to disappear from star charts. However, it did become a haven for down-and-out spacers. After the mining concern failed, the Jedi Agricultural Corps helped the farmers defend their villages from vicious high-hounds.

During the Clone Wars, Aduba had been annexed by the Hutt Empire, though it would be claimed by the Galactic Empire after the war. A powerful shadowport after its dealings with the Hutts, it attracted all kinds of scum from across the galaxy looking to avoid those who pursued them. Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Han Solo and his companions, the Star-Hoppers of Aduba-3, faced Serji-X Arrogantus and his Cloud-Riders in defense of Onacra, but the Old One, a local shaman, awoke the dormant Behemoth. Solo killed the Behemoth with Don-Wan Kihotay's lightsaber. The bounty hunter Beilert Valance came to the planet seeking to kill Jimm Doshun, whom he mistakenly believed to be the destroyer of the Death Star I. Jaxxon and Amaiza Foxtrain saved Jimm.

Natural or not, Banthas seemed to be a solid part of the ecosystem, as well- to the point where they were considered one of the 'resources' of Aduba-3 (unless I am misremembering that from the backstory I wrote for it; Aduba-3 was a focus of my audio drama). Regardless, they featured prominently in both storylines, and thus might warrant featuring in the stats as a prominent imported form of wildlife.

I went back and looked through the storyline and you care correct. One of the farmers is quoted as saying "we raise bantha for food and transportation.' There is an additional panel showing a group of banthas in a field. Furthermore the entire group is seen riding banthas to Jim's village. This is more than enough to convince me they are part of the current ecosystem, whether naturally a part of introduced. Thank you for the suggestion.
