Snipluk 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 are the much smaller relative of the larger version known as Snaplak.

P.D.A Scanner Information

SNIPLUK- Deadly little critter.



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.

Lifestyle and Habits

The Snipluk creatures are known to burrow themselves underground, awaiting for any prey to ambush as they pass by, attacking them by shooting energy orbs, similar to Kalda Chom. Some are even found with refuge in dens, dug into walls and cilffs. They have no real defenses against Krystal's Staff other than diving for cover if they have not been fully beaten. Snipluks that hide from view can only be harmed by a single shot from the Fire Blaster.

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

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.
