The third Bugsnak is a little trickier. Walk between the rocks from your starting area to a grassy field, where you will find another Strabby wandering around. Be careful to avoid the Green Lollive hovering above, who will latch onto your trap with its tongue if it circles near it. You can retrieve your trap from the item wheel if it does so. Catch the Strabby using the trap to catch the 3 Bugsnax.

Return to Filbo and you will then be tasked with feeding him the creatures in order to progress to Snakburg. You can then carry on unraveling the mystery of Snaktooth Island with the deputy mayor and the other hungry Grumpuses.
