It's a Snapper! The way these things move, they never expose the weak part of their body! (MM)

Snappers are turtle-like enemies. Their shells provide them with great defense, leaving only their underbellies as their weak spots. They can be beaten with several strategies, including launching from a Deku Flower while as Deku Link to hit them from beneath, flipping them over with Goron Link's punches, or by using a Bomb to blast away their defenses.

Gekko, the mini-boss of the Woodfall Temple, rides a giant Snapper. After knocking him off his Snapper, Link must shoot him with the Hero's Bow as he crawls across the ceiling.


The name Snapper is likely a reference to the Snap Turtle.
