Journal sticker.png The Journal is a record of all information about your time on Snaktooth Island!

The Journal is an information resource management tool, containing inventory overview of key items and tools, biographies of Bugsnax and relevant Grumpuses and the Snaktooth Island map. Its contents are added by The Journalist themself.

The journal itself is listed under "Tools".

The journal would have been part of the Journalist's own starter inventory along the SnaxScope and Snakpack but claim to have lost/left it on their ship. They receive a replacement from Beffica in her first main quest High Learner, guiding the Journalist through it as a tutorial, before entering Snaxburg.
