The sniniq has been described as something like a sasquatch, but there is a notable difference. The sniniq has a defense mechanism which appears to be unique.
Should a sniniq wish to attack you, it reverses its eyeballs. No, don't try this yourself, you might do yourself a damage. From its eyes it will shoot out beams, which render any adversary unconscious.
This sounds somewhat far-fetched, but it is not impossible, so, if I ever chance upon a sniniq, I will endeavor not to annoy it.
