The Shellsnapper is a machine in Horizon Forbidden West.[1]


The Shellsnapper resembles an enormous snapping turtle, with large amounts of foliage covering its shell.


This machine guards the shores and swamps of the Forbidden West.[1] It can dig itself in and lie dormant for weeks, possibly even months, during which its impenetrable shell can become covered by the surrounding foliage.[2]
