The bonesnapper is a descendant of a long-extinct dinosaur (exactly which one is unknown). Though unintelligent, it is fond of collecting and decorating its lair with the jawbones of its victims.

A bonesnapper stands about 5 feet tall and weighs about 500 pounds.

The bonesnapper attacks with its powerful bite and tail slap. After biting a foe, it swings its tail around to smash the same opponent. If flanked or attacked by more than one creature, the bonesnapper divides its attacks between its foes. The bonesnapper fights to the death.
