The Pakuni are a race of humanoid like creatures. They have edged out foreheads and are hunched over. Their faces are like humans except that they have a flatter nose. They are also covered in hair, and resemble early hominids.
They go through a ritual every second day of the third moon cycle. The ritual is to toss in a vegetable to the God Pylon where then they get a shopping cart from Earth and a lot of food. Another ritual is the passage to manhood. The child Pakuni will have to steal an egg from a Dinosaur. The only weapons they have is a bag of rocks that momentarily distract the dinosaur, and a staff.
The Pakuni usually live in an area of dense jungle. The Pakuni usually have two rocks, one for their painting of god, and another for their safety. Some Pakuni have adapted to live in places like the Altrusian mountains and some on a desert like the High Bluff.
The Pakuni are easily scared. They have been known to be scared of most dinosaurs except babies. Also the Pakuni are stubborn and don't learn easily. The Pakuni have also been known to be loyal if they are bribed.
There are only three known Pakuni. They are Cha-Ka, Ta and Sa. Ta is the male Pakuni and is the adult. He is not to be questioned. Sa, the female Pakuni is completely devoted to her husband. The female Pakuni normally is less intelligent and can normally not speak. Cha-Ka is the child Pakuni. He is supposed to be a learner from both his parents and not ask questions. Cha-Ka however is not like that and is devoted to helping the Marshall's.
- The 2009 film (regarded as satirical and non-canonical) shows the Pakuni living together in a fairly large village. It also shows Pakuni females which are far more human-looking than the males.
