History
Based on Snake

Snakes were natural reptiles that had no legs. They slithered along the ground or in trees in search of food, which consisted of small mammals, insects, and birds. In many parts of the world, snakes were seen as helpful creatures, due to their feeding on unwanted vermin.[citation needed]

SpeciesEdit

Adder
A poisonous snake found in the Duskwood.[4]
Black mamba 
A very aggressive snake that could grow to over 14 ft. (4.3 m) in length.[5]
Boomslang 
A small and docile snake with a very dangerous bite.[6]
Bushmaster 
A powerful form of viper.[7]
Cobra 
A venomous snake with an expandable hood near the neck.[8]
Constrictor 
These snakes were often long, large, and powerful. They used their massive bodies to warp around their prey and slowly squeeze the air from its lungs before consuming it whole. After feeding, these snakes often crawled up a tree to digest their meal over the course of many days.[citation needed]
