The Gnosh is a Maxis-made creature, and is present in the final game. They are aggressive carnivores and are some of the strongest creatures in Maxis' Sporepedia. They have level 5 bite, spit, and charge. Gnosh have mammalian hooves but exo-skeletal hands, along with a fish-like mouth. Some players may find them hard to kill because of their high combat rating. Gnosh can be found or played in every stage except the Cell Stage. They are close relatives of the Konoc.

They are known as Spike-butts (шипозады) in the Russian Version.
