A creature defined in Lewis Carroll's "The Hunting of the Snark". Decribed as those creatures "that have feathers, and bite, and those that have whiskers, and scratch".
"If your Snark be a Snark, that is right:
Fetch it home by all means—you may serve it with greens,
And it’s handy for striking a light.
You may seek it with thimbles—and seek it with care;
You may hunt it with forks and hope;
You may threaten its life with a railway-share;
You may charm it with smiles and soap—”
The combination of two creatures in Lewis Carroll's "The Hunting of the Snark". Details are elusive on what exactly a Snark
are, but a Boosnark is thought to be more dangerous. One should never be hunted alone.
We were hunting a Boosnark and my hunting party dissappeared with out a sound or a wisp of wind
