A palukoo

The palukoo was a large arachnid indigenous to the Bajoran moons.

During the Occupation of Bajor, Bajoran Resistance members often survived on a diet of palukoo.

In 2370, Kira Nerys and Jadzia Dax encountered a palukoo while passing through the caverns of the Lunar V base, searching for a Bajoran raider. Jadzia jokingly thought the Resistance fighters kept them as pets, and sang about them around campfires before discovering their true purpose. (DS9: "The Siege")

The actual prop used was a battery operated spider toy Joe Longo bought at a yard sale. Its appearance was modified by makeup artist Michael Westmore. (The Art of Star Trek, p. 119)
