When George Lucas and his crew went to Tunisia to film the Tatooine scenes for A New Hope, they had much set decoration to accomplish. One of the things they created was a skeleton of a creature they called the Greater Krayt (pictured below). Apparently, they built their sets to last as, when they returned to the same sites in Tunisia to film The Phantom Menace, the Greater Krayt skeleton was, amazingly, still there!
