Giant Viper

The giant viper’s fangs are a frightening sight, with injection tubes as long as daggers. The sheer amount of venom injected by a giant viper can cause severe blood clotting and leave a victim utterly drained of vitality.

Snakes come in an array of forms, from jungle-dwelling constrictors that wrap around their prey to venomous vipers with deadly bites. Regardless, all snakes consume their prey whole by unhinging their jaws and using powerful muscles to move the food down their throats and into their stomachs.

Snake Resources

Snakeskin’s distinctive pattern and wide variety of applications makes it a sought-after resource, and the hides of extra-large snakes such as giant anacondas can fetch a fine price in the right market. Such oversized snake hides can be used to craft clothing of snakeskin leather, including boots and gloves, as well as other items such as scabbards, backpacks, and even tents or makeshift boats. A snake’s hide can be cleanly removed with a successful Crafting check or appropriate Lore check.

Snakes in Mythology

Snakes appear frequently and prominently in the myths and legends of many cultures throughout the Inner Sea region. In Ancient Osirion, snakes were revered and associated both with the evil serpent god Apep and the good goddess Wadjet, the Green Empress. Perhaps the best-known example of snakes in Golarion’s legends are the serpentfolk— serpentine humanoids who ruled vast swaths of the world in prehistoric times and worshipped a foul snake deity called Ydersius.
