Bonehead Jeds appear to be Skellirexes that are inside small barrel carts overflowing with tar. When approached it may extend its very long neck upwards to prevent Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong from defeating it by jump on its skull. Bonehead Jeds can only be defeated by jumping on its skull or hitting it with a barrel.
When its neck is extended it's unlikely that the Kongs will be within range of its skull. If either Kong hits the neck, they will be hurt. Bonehead's neck will slowly come down after a short time and it will spit out a tar projectile randomly as well. Bonehead Jeds are not common but often hinder progress.
