|Dragon Quest monster|
Art by Akira Toriyama
|First appearance||Dragon Quest IV|
|Old localization||Carnivore plant, Snapper|
The body of a carnivine is arranged in three layers, with the bottom composed of its leg-like roots, the middle being made of a circle of large, green leaves, and the top holding its three white, fanged flowers, connected to the leafy section by flexible stems.
The Snapper is a three-star member of the Nature family with a weight of 3. It naturally learns Seal Magic, Save Power and Sleep Hit. Its in-game description reads "Its breath has a sweet scent that lures prey inside."

Carnivine is possibly a spin on the original name, Carnivore Plant, combining carnivore, a being that eats meat, with vine, a tendril-like component found on some plants.
- The monster shares its name, possibly by coincidence, with Pokémon.
- Carnivines also bear a thematic similarity to the Piranha Plants of Super Mario fame, though they lack the tropical coloring and mottled appearance.
