We now finally know what those amazing crystal foxes in Star Wars: The Last Jedi are officially called.

As part of EW's latest coverage of the new movie, it has been revealed that the creature from the mineral-rich world of Crait is known as a vulptex, with a pack of them being vulptices.

It was coined by Lucasfilm story group member Pablo Hidalgo from the Latin word for "fox" ("vulpes") and the creatures were designed by Aaron McBride.
