A fold-out seat has been added behind the drivers-side and passenger-side doors. Here a Hunter with a tranq-rifle has the capability to tranquilize an animal that hasn’t already been done so by the time the Snagger nears it.

Next, the back-end of the Snagger features a the same platform as it’s lesser modified version. However, this variation of the cage also feature a harpoon-function which allows for a hunter to fire a harpoon gun delivering a shallow-sink dart into an animal’s skin, which sticks long enough to bring the animal close enough to the front of the vehicle for the next, and most obvious, feature to be utilized. Extending over the front of the vehicle is a gigantic prong-shaped mechanism. This prong holds a netting of chains that falls around its prey, holding it in place as a number of air bags inflate to keep the captive snugly held still until hunters can arrive on foot to use veterinary lassos to trap and sedate the animal. We see the Snagger used in the film on a Pachycephalosaurus.
