Skellyrex 2 by jaguar123

A Skellyrex walking around.

Skellyrexes are prominent foes found in the Cliff world in Donkey Kong Country Returns, as well as Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.

Biology

They look like skeletons of small parasaurolophus dinosaurs, presumably having perished in the lethal tar pits of their biome. Given the chance, they will bite Donkey and Diddy Kong, dealing damage. They can be damaged by jumping on top of their heads, or rolling through them. If they are damaged, their bodies will shatter, leaving only their heads behind, turning into Skullyrexes, which will continue to leap around, snapping at the player.
