Golden Snaggles as seen in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

Golden Snaggles are shark enemies from Donkey Kong Country Returns and Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They are found in the Beach levels and the Ruins level Damp Dungeon. They appear also in the next game, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.


Golden Snaggles are basically regular Snaggles, but have a yellow color for their bodies.


In Donkey Kong Country Returns, the Golden Snaggles behave slightly different from the common, blue Snaggles. They will take a normal jump, wait, and then spring up extremely high for the second jump, taking inattentive Kongs by surprise. They can be defeated by throwing a barrel, just like a blue Snaggles.

In Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, the Golden Snaggles loses its ability of jumping off water. With the Kongs' new swimming skill, if the primates go inside its patrolling area, the shark will pursue and try to bite them. When underwater, it is not possible for the heroes to defeat the Golden Snaggles, they must avoid the enemy to all costs. However, the Golden Snaggles still can be defeat by the Kongs throwing barrels or watermelon bombs at it from outside of water.



  • Despite their color schemes and more cartoon-like appearances, Snaggles and Golden Snaggles are often confused with Chomps from Donkey Kong Country.
