The Z'krall are a technologically primitive sophont species.
The Z'krall (or Swarmer) is a shaggy, quadrocular multiped and a Minor Non-Human Race.
- Z'krall grow more legs as they grow older and larger. Up to nine radially-arranged legs have been observed on old specimens. The Z'krall homeword is Moncton (Diaspora 2125). The Z'krall have a complex society.

Most noteworthy, the Z'krall has a complex society but no apparent means of communicating. It has no sound-producing organs, signalling plumage, or other structure typically used for transmitting information. This has puzzled scientists for centuries.
In 1108 the means of communication was accidentally discovered. The clouds of insect-like "idiot gnats" that accompany the Z'krall are actually cellular repeaters for extremely high-frequency radio emissions from the Z'krall. The gnats are produced within the Z'krall bodies, secreted in their waste, and nourished by secretions on their skin; they function as mobile, reconfigurable antennae for the Z'krall. Once researchers made this breakthrough, they contacted the Z'krall by radio, and discovered that they had an unusual facility for linguistics.
