Snaillob can be found all along the Portia River riverbank, Portia Harbor coast, or Eufaula Desert coast. During Mission: The Cave on Amber Island, some Snaillobs can also be found inside Amber Island's Cave.
Snaillobs spawn at any time. Like other creatures, they will respawn if the player enters and then leaves a building during their spawn times.
Snaillobs are very slow creatures, but like other creatures, they are able to enter water. They tend to wander along bodies of water in small groups, simply grinning and occasionally stretching their pincers.
After provocation, they will travel at a slow speed, running just slower than the player.
When attacking, Snaillobs will swing their claws and quickly charge at the player (faster than the player's sprinting speed), but can only charge for a short distance.
