The Burrowing Snagret is a half-bird, half-snake creature that first appeared in Pikmin's Forest of Hope. It burrows underground and emerges from seemingly nowhere when the area above it is disturbed. It snatches Pikmin one-by-one with its large beak until it has 3, at which point it will give a short pause and then continue snacking. If you are attacking the snagret during the first feeding, it will burrow into the ground again instead, reemerging shortly after, sometimes from a different place. In Pikmin 2, this creature becomes much more common. They are found in various Caves, and also guarding the entrance to the Snagret Hole in the Awakening Wood.
How to Defeat
The easiest way to beat it is by latching your Pikmin onto its head when it emerges from the ground. Before it does, the ground above it will shake. Move your Pikmin onto that area with the C-stick, and they will begin attacking the snagret immediately. Either toss on more Pikmin (from a distance) or back away. It will eventually burrow back into the ground. Repeat this process until it is dead. Alternatively, if you are not concerned about losing a few Pikmin, you can swarm this beast from the ground.
"The majority of snagret species lie in wait to ambush and capture prey, with a body type perfectly adapted to such sudden strikes. It violently attacks small, surface-dwelling insects. Distributed across a relatively wide range, subspecies of snagret suited to the varying soil conditions have emerged, making the snagret the most geographically represented species besides the bulborb. Visually resembling the burrowing snagret is the Burrowing Snarrow, the range of which partially overlaps with the snagret's range. While the two may appear similar, when pulled from the ground they can be distinguished by the presence or absence of tail and wing markings."
