The snorke is a grass-grazer. As the herds move across the plains feeding, they expose the lower layers of vegetation, which provide food for the smaller herbivores.

The snorkeLepidonasus lemuriensis, is a small, suid-like bovine bovid from the tropical grasslands of Lemuria in After Man: A Zoology of the Future.

While a valuphant feeds only on herbs and roots, which it gouges up with its horns, the grasses themselves are eaten by more lightly built fleet-footed even-toed ungulates such as the snorke. The snorke has a very long head with its eyes placed near the top (an adaptation that enables it to keep a watch for predators while grazing).
