Snaunts are a unique monster found in forest, jungle, and toxic biomes. They can also be found in the Desert Subsurface underground layer as well as in underground layers 0c, 0d, 1b and 1d. They can also be found in poison Ancient Vaults.

They have a spit attack that deals damage equal to their contact damage (10 base damage).

This monster has a weakness (+50% damage taken) to Ice damage and a resistance (-50% damage taken) to Poison damage. Additionally, it cannot be inflicted with Poisoned.

Rare Form

A rare elemental variant of this monster can be found on bounty missions, and has a very small chance to appear in the wild. It has an identical drop pool, base stats, and spawn area, but applies the slowing electrified status effect when touched. This variant spits a larger electric ball with slower velocity than the standard variant's poison spit.

This form can also be captured, and when caught will complete an entry in the Rare Pets collection.

  • The Ophidaunt is implied to be an ancestor of the Snaunt, having been colossally larger and was an oceanic predator.
