...that bounding over logs

Hello everyone,

This is an excerpt from a novel, I'm not sure if it's correct, it doesn't sound like it to me, especially the "that bounding" part: "The lyleks burst through the trees, huge insectoid creatures that bounding over logs, the pair of tentacles near their mandibles squirming. Seeing Vader, the Emperor, and the guards, they hissed and rushed forward."

If this is not a typo, what kind of structure is this? Thank you

    It could also be ...huge insectoid creatures that bounding over logs (without "that") but the suggestions in #2 are more likely.

    The preview available on Amazon.com shows no "that" (as Barque suggested).
    The lyleks burst through the trees, huge insectoid creatures bounding over logs, the pair of tentacles near their mandibles squirming.
