- "Why can't we have some meats? (notices Merry and Pippin)... What about them? They're fresh."
- —Snaga to Uglúk about Merry and Pippin.
Snaga was an Orc brought by Grishnákh to help him gain control of Merry and Pippin and bring them to Mordor. Hunger for fresh meat eventually overcame his limited discipline. He eventually tried to get "Just a mouthful" of the two captured Hobbits by sneaking in behind Uglúk, who was making sure the captives got to Isengard unharmed and unspoiled. Uglúk, after shouting at Snaga that they were not for eating, ended up cutting Snaga's head off, therefore providing his company with "fresh meat" and cannibalized by the other Uruk-hai.
