A sprite of Snapjaw

|Enemies||Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong|
|Games||Donkey Kong Country 2|
A Snapjaw is an aquatic 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. They only appear in two levels, 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.
Snapjaw does not appear at all in Donkey Kong Land 2. Instead, in Slime Climb and Clapper's Cavern, touching the water instantly hurts the Kongs.
