The Snaplak is a wide spread species of burrowing, vicious menaces living in various locations on Dinosaur Planet.


Their appearance is like that of the EggSnatchers, suggesting that they are of the same family. They have a much smaller relative known as Snipluk.

P.D.A Scanner Information

SNAPLAK- Can pop out anywhere



These scaly, long-nailed creatures emerge from the ground, strike at their target, and quickly disappear quickly. They respawn quickly, too.
—Star Fox Adventures; Prima's Official Strategy Guide, pg 16


SnapLak uses claw and bite attacks; SnipLuk and Kooshy have a projectile attack.
—Star Fox Adventures; Prima's Official Strategy Guide, pg 16


Sidestep or block their initial attack and strike back quickly, before they disappear. If they do not get away, be wary; they will strike again.
—Star Fox Adventures; Prima's Official Strategy Guide, pg 16

Lifestyle and Habits

The Snaplak creatures are known to burrow themselves underground, awaiting for any prey to ambush as they pass by, attacking them with slashing, sharp claws or head butting with their sharp beak. They have no real defenses against Krystal's Staff other than diving for cover if they have not been fully beaten.

When risen from the ground, they are much taller than Fox McCloud, yet they remain partially underground which prevents their correct size from being known.

This species is difficult to document as they cannot be easily approached without causing the creatures to dive for cover underground, combined with their subterranean based lifestyle.
