Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back - Cauterizing the Wampa
In the scene where Luke is in the Wampa's cave, he slices off the Wampa's arm. He does this with his Lightsabre. Lightsabres are made of coherent energy and are so hot that they cauterize any wound they ,ake and so leave no blood. Both the Wampa's arm and his shoulder are bloody. There should not be no blood at all in this scene.

you are absolutly right! and when they slice that other animal (excuse me for not knowing its name, i do apologise) all of its guts come out and that wouldnt happen either because when you cuaterize somthing it seels it. good spotting.

Thank you Aaron. The other animal is called a Taun-Taun though I don't know if there is a hyphen in the middle as I have typed. You are also right about not having the Taun-Taun's guts come out.

But remember in ANH when Obi-Wan cut off walrus face and the good doctors arms off in the cantina fight there was blood.

Perhaps the fact that they are in sub-zero temperatures would have some adverse effects on the lightsaber's ability to cauterize. However, remember when Obi-Wan slices off the arm in the cantina in episode 4 there is some blood on the floor next to it.

Here's he difference... When Han Solo cuts open the Taun Taun, he is slicing into somthing with depth, in which a hole would be open as apposed to an arm or leg being severed. Thus allowing all of the dead animal's organs to escape the body. If Han had sliced it in half, it would have had the same effect. Oh, and when the wampa's arm gets cut off, there's no blood anywhere on the wound, and instead a big black hole where the arm should be.
