Geonosis is a planet from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. It is the home planet of the Geonosians, one of the founding worlds as well as one of first homeworlds of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, and the site of the Battle of Geonosis. The Stalgasin Hive, the largest of the Geonosian hives, was ruled by Poggle the Lesser, the Geonosian archduke, until his death at the end of the Clone Wars (Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith).
The planet's most dangerous predator are massiffs, dog-like lizards that are not particularly bright. Geonosians utilize massiffs in addition to larger creatures in captivity for use in their combat arenas. Examples include acklays, reeks, and nexu.
Geonosis was also the location of the Delta Squad commandos' first documented mission. Their mission was to kill a Geonosian leader, destroy a Droid Factory, and destroy one of the Droid Control Ships.
