The Jooka is a Maxis-made creature, present in the final game. It first appeared in the Spore Creature Creator. The Jooka is somewhat similar to the historic creature Bunzo in shape.

Jookas aren't very adept at fighting. Their only means of attack is a weak bite. They aren't capable of striking, charging or spitting, and they must have problems obtaining food, since they are carnivores.

While socializing, they can execute a non-impressive sing skill. They also have access to a powerful charm skill, due to their Pomp Poms. They can't dance nor pose.
