The White-Tipped Burrowing Snarrow is a flying snavian boss appearing in Pikmin Z. It is a snake-like enemy with fully-developed wings, green scales, and a curved beak.

Biology

This species of snavian still bears the functional wings passed down to it from its ancestors. As for attacks, it is able to breathe fire from its mouth, divebomb leaders and Pikmin, and generate strong gusts of wind by flapping its wings.

Piklopedia entry

"This species of burrowing snarrow still holds the ability to fly, something most other snagrets and snarrows had removed in their evolution. It leaves me to wonder why other snagrets and snarrows hadn't done the same thing."

Strategy

The fight against the White-Tipped Burrowing Snarrow takes place in its nest, over which the creature will fly just out of reach. It focuses primarily on Pikmin and occasionally dives towards them to snag and eat a few. If it misses, its beak will become lodged in its nest, providing the opportunity to attack the creature while it struggles to free itself. However, once the White-Tipped Burrowing Snarrow frees itself, a portion of the nest will be destroyed, which will make navigating the arena increasingly difficult as the battle continues. The boss may choose to spew a jet of fire from its mouth instead of diving to eat Pikmin, where it will lower to the ground and open it to a counterattack. Continue attacking until it falls in defeat.
