The snagbunny may look disarmingly cute from afar, but the moment that its furry lips part to reveal a wide set of long, jagged, snaggleteeth–well, it might be too late to run. Most often spotted alone, quizzically sniffing at the air with its ears perked like a rabbit, the snagbunny is a semi-sentient critter that relies on ambushing and overrunning its prey. These lone “scouts” as they’re called, are actually never alone, for roving in the nearby underbrush is an army of two to three dozen hungry snagbunnies waiting to pounce on anything that engages with the scout.
The snagbunny’s legs, which are bent back like a bird’s, are deceptively powerful, and have been known to launch the creature up to twenty feet horizontally. And their jaws are like an iron vice; a snagbunny will just as soon die with its teeth clenched on the leg of a retaliating victim, before it lets go of its target.
Because they also proliferate as rapidly and multitudinous as rabbits, their populations can easily overtake a forest or dale and throw its ecosystem completely off-kilter. This is why Boggles are so important. Even though Boggles are often considered less intelligent than their larger Boggart counterparts, they are still indeed smarter than snagbunnies, and experienced fur-trappers can easily outwit the critters’ scout tactics. This has led directly to the booming Snagbunny fur trade in recent years, which, aside from Waste Management, is the only fully-Boggle operated industry.
