Snapjaw is an enemy in Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest. They are similar to Lockjaws, except they are pink and cannot be defeated. Instead, they roam around the water, biting the Kongs at first sight, mimicking the behavior of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!'s Nibbla, with the exception of not waiting. They only appear in two stages, Slime Climb and Clapper's Cavern. In Slime Climb, the water is racing up to the masts, and the Snapjaw attacks the heroes if they fall in. In Clapper's cavern, the rare animal buddy Clapper the Seal is needed to freeze the water so that the Kongs can safely walk across without being bit by Snapjaw.
