The Pileated Snagret is a boss in Pikmin 2 for the Nintendo GameCube and New Play Control! for the Wii. This is one of the harder bosses, this boss can hop around making much harder than the burrowing snagret. This boss burrows itself underground, and when Olimar or the Pikmin walks near it, it will pop up out of the floor. Sometimes it will come out head first and slowly, that's when you should throw Pikmin on its head. The ultra-spicy spray or ultra-bitter sprays are both very helpful against a boss like this. This boss is found sublevel 4 in Hole of Heroes, sublevel 7 in Snagret Hole. This is not in Pikmin, it is in the Snavian Family. You usually fight this boss when quicksand is near.
"This variety of snagret has the ability to both burrow underground and walk above it. Its earthy red coloration and distinct yellow ear and eye markings make it immediately recognizable. Despite featuring a chimeralike merging of serpent and avian features, the pileated snagret has poor eyesight for a bird, perhaps due to extended periods spent underground. To compensate for this, its nose features a thermal-sensing organ common to many snakes, making it a dangerously effective hunter."
"You haven't lived until you've tasted a mint-braised snagret shrank! Or if you're feeling especially saucy, stuff a bird with a can of your favorite savory nectar, throw it on the barbeque, and let the juices mingle to make a mean beverage-canister snagret!"
