Rondor beasts were a species of bovine-like creatures that grazed fields of genetically-engineered grass on Krypton.
Rondor beasts were kept in fields below the House of El Citadel. When Kal-El made his first cries, they were heard by some Rondors.
It is also rumored that Nam-Ek was so inhumanly huge and muscular primarily because he was born as the result of mixing the DNA of a Kryptonian with that of a Rondor beast.
