Bandersnatch


A bandersnatch is a creature with long legs, wings, a neck which it can extend and sharp, snapping jaws. It can run incredibly fast and is also a pretty good flyer. It is fairly intelligent, able to communicate with humans and other beings, and it can also camouflage itself so it looks like a tree.

2005-11-29 [Kim_Lundin]: This is what I've heard about Bandersnatch. Does anyone else have any information?

2006-09-22 [H3_six]: The bandersnatch is a made up creature from the Jabberwocky poem.

2007-04-10 [itoe]: The Bandersnatch reappears in Lewis Carroll's "The Hunting of the Snark". In Fit the Seventh, this frumious beast attacks the Banker while he seeks the Snark with thimbles and care. The bandersnatch is quick, but its method of movement is not explained. It has a neck it can extend and frumious jaws. It seems immune to bribes, as the Banker could not fend it off with a cheque. However, the bandersnatch fled at the approach of the rest of the hunting party, led by the Bellman, ringing his bell. The intelligence, communication skills, and camouflage skills are not explained.
