Colartas are a species of tall, bipedal reptillians with acute senses, particularly their sense of smell, and an additional sense which allows them to detect and recognize heat signatures. They have two hearts pumping blood through their bodies and are capable of shapeshifting. They are excellent hunters and trackers because of these various abilities. They are, however, susceptible to heavy gravity due to their height and build.
For many cycles, Peacekeepers employed many Colartas as indentured servants. Each colarta was required to complete nine search-and-destroy or search-and-recover missions in order to earn their freedom. This practice was abolished during the Peacekeeper Reformation.
John Crichton referred to this species as "piña coladas".
Colartas are seen in Farscape.
