Appearance in Pikmin 3.
Scientific name Shiropedes anacondii
Family Snavian

The Burrowing Snagret appears to be a combination of a bird and a snake, and is a member of the snavian family. It remains underground for the majority of the time, surfacing only when approached by Pikmin or a leader. When above ground, it attempts to eat Pikmin one by one until it is sufficiently damaged, at which point it burrows back underground. In Pikmin 3, it can also stab its beak into the ground to eat a leader and then regurgitate them; if the attack misses, its beak will get stuck in the ground and be vulnerable to attack.

Attacks Eats and skewers Pikmin, causes panic

In Pikmin 4: Machine World, the Burrowing Snagret serves as a boss and the first boss overall. Its initial behavior is the same as the behavior of its Pikmin 3 incarnation, although, in its new second phase, it gains two more attacks: one is burrowing underground and thrusting its beak out of the ground at the active leader's position, concluded by unleashing a roar that induces panic in Pikmin; the other is a shake attack resulting in it shedding feathers that induce panic in Pikmin that are latched onto it at the time before it quickly retreats underground. Because the first of its two new attacks in its second phase targets the active leader, switching to another leader makes for a good distraction if they are far enough away.

Notes

Olimar's notes

After a bit more studying, I found that these creatures are incredibly intelligent, always gaining new techniques to attack Pikmin. However, after Louie's Robo-Catyclysm, there seems to be only one left above-ground, seemingly guarding Yellow Pikmin.

Louie's notes

Slice the serpentine torso into thin medallions, skewer on a metal rod with Hocotatian onions, and barbecue over an open flame.

Alph's notes

Structural flaw: beak / Weight: 10 / Its bulk and speed make it a very fearsome model. It's very difficult to retrieve a Pikmin once it's snapped one up in its beak. However, if you can dodge its beak as it comes down, the beak's sharpness works against it as it gets stuck in the soil. That leaves the head wide open to be pelted with Pikmin as fast as you can. However, now you have to deal with its impaling drill stab and shedded feathers.

Brittany's notes

I've never seen the bottom half of one of these. I have all sorts of ideas about what might be under there. It could be a long snake tail, or a big, plump body stuck underground. Or maybe, below the neck, it looks just like us.

Charlie's notes

Now, I get that it's big, and that big things are scary. But that twisty neck can't twist all the way around, so all you have to do is get behind it. Once you're there, pour on the Winged Pikmin, and you're golden! However, now that it has new techniques, I am ready to find new battle strategies.

Mary's notes

I found another one on a small exploring trip of mine in a cave and studied its behavior. It protected its eggs so vigorously, killing anything near it. Beautiful, how a mother's love is stronger than a giant monster.

Attacks Eats Pikmin

The Burrowing Snagret is a boss that appears early on in Pikmin Eco. It is slightly weaker though than in previous games, making it a fairly quick and easy boss to defeat. When confronted it will burst put of the ground and attempt to peck at Pikmin at least three times in a row before pausing for a bit, and burrowing back underground again. Only one can be found in Cloven Gardens in the Snagret Tunnels, but multiple can be encountered while going through the Rooster's Nest.

Attacks Eats Pikmin

The Burrowing Snagret is a boss in Pikmin Forever. Its appearance is much the same as in Pikmin 3, but it reacts to changes in the environment and different species and quantities Pikmin. Its head can be brought down to the ground when weighed down by enough Pikmin, leaving a noticeable depression in dirt, and fabric in Challenge Mode, and visibly flattening grass. It eventually overpowers the offending Pikmin and lifts up its head once more after doing so. Purple Pikmin will bring the creature's head down quicker, while Winged Pikmin fail to bring it down at all. Depending on the material, a Burrowing Snagret's beak may become lodged in the ground if it misses a Pikmin. If this occurs with wood, small holes will be visible in it. A Burrowing Snagret can peck and eat Winged Pikmin out of the air if only they fight it. If there are fifty or more Pikmin in its vicinity, it will launch a surprise attack, which involves it quickly sprouting out of the ground in the middle of the squad, eating any Pikmin thrown into the air, seven at most, and flinging the squad in all directions. It also uses this attack when its health reaches one-fourth or less. Upon defeat, it falls limply to the ground and can be pulled out of the ground by ten Pikmin, or a single Purple Pikmin, and dragged to an Onion for twenty Pikmin seeds.

The Burrowing Snagret in Pikmin Kart is an item that rarely appears in item boxes. A few moments after use, a Burrowing Snagret will pop out of the ground where the item was used. It'll start biting nearby karts to stun them, but if no karts drive by it burrows in wait. A Burrowing Snagret will bite up to three karts before disappearing.

In Pikmin TCG, the Burrowing Snagret appears in the Pikmin 1 card set as one of the stronger cards in the set. It can avoid attacks if it does not attack, much like the Male Sheargrub.

Notes

Olimar's notes

For the first time in a while, I saw the Burrowing Snagret's tail. The tail is one way to distinguish it from the Burrowing Snarrow, which has a more fancy one. How snagrets got feathers and scales is still unknown.

Ship's notes

I. HATE. SCALES. That's what makes this creature so horrific. Then there are the feathers. I don't want carpet beetles in my hold! They're harmful!

Notes

Charlie's notes

Duck and dodge the monster's beak, and be wary when it emerges. Aim for the feathered head, its weak spot. Yellow and Winged Pikmin are most effective against this fiendish creature.

Derrick's notes

Pluck off at least four feathers from the head, and dip them into colorful paint made from crushed candypop bud petals. Form a perfect circle from flexible tendons or treated leather tubing, weave the tight sinews of a Spotty Bulbear into a web through the center of the loop, and tie as many sinews to the bottom as there are feathers, leaving one end free. Tie the dyed feathers to the free end of the dangling sinews, and hang the entire construct above your bed to guarantee sweet dreams, even to those prone to life-threatening nightmares.

Attacks Eats Pikmin

In Pikmin: New World, the Burrowing Snagret is slightly larger and has a slightly stronger tone to its scales. It can eat four Pikmin at once and has a slightly longer beak. It is a lot more of a challenge to defeat, about the same difficulty as in Pikmin 1. It serves as a boss in the Hot Tar Pools. Also, a relative of the Burrowing Snagret, the Long-Beaked Snagret, also appears as a boss in the Bird Tunnel.

Notes

Olimar's notes

Chemical analysis of the burrowing snavian's DNA clearly shows how the hybrid creature originated from two separate species of different phylogenic classes. Lack of food resources may have caused birds to hunt for food buried underground, such as grubs or cocoons. This may have started them nesting on solid ground and laying their eggs closer to those of snakes. Eventually, a cosmic ray could have fused the two eggs into a single zygote, causing it to hatch into the first, primitive snagret. Other theories have suggested that the creature's evolution involved some form of egg parasitism between the species.

Louie's notes

Slice its snakelike body into four, long sausage-shaped pieces. Strip all of the delicious bird meat that can be salvaged off of the head and fry its long tongue in sizzling vegetable oil until it is hard and crispy like bacon. Stuff the snake-meat sausages with cheese and butter and then wrap them all up into a roll of bird meat and simmer over a high flame with parsley and cyan pepper as well as an entire quart of olive oil! Don't forget to slap the bacon on top!

Sagittarius' notes

It's best placed within a large tank similar to an ant or worm farm so that its tunneling and hunting behaviors can be observed through the glass of the tank. From this perspective, it can clearly be seen that the snagret actually digs out a highly complex three-dimensional network of tunnels that it uses and reuses constantly when hunting. It should preferably be fed with worms or bird pellets. Snake food such as rats or mice can be fed to it alternatively. Just plain insects will do just as well.

Libra's notes

This creature's luxurious emerald-scaled skin can be turned into boots, coats, vests, or purses. Its head feathers and beak make the best possible quality of headdresses and hats imaginable. Oh, the fame, the money, and the fans that await anyone who wears the clothing that this hybrid creature creates! Sadly, it is terribly expensive with prices soaring at over two million Pokos!
