These are mid sized creatures tallest height being 5 feet tall. They stick to the water mostly, but come out of the rivers to feet They have a humanoid upper half, strong arms with long sharp claws, as well as hundreds of tentacles that enable them to crawl like snakes along hard ground. They have yellow eyes and are dark grey to black skinned.
Flail snakes are armed with long sharp claws used for skewering and tearing apart fish, which is their main source of food. They eat the poisonous and ravenous fish in Zyg Thod, but will sustain on any type of fish. Their long tentacles hold a venemous poison that acts as a nerve agent to anyone or anything it touches. Once the victim is rendered paralyzed by the tentacles, it will bring the food from ground under the water the devour..
Flail snakes mate for life, and can sustain a very long life span, up to 100 years. That is what makes them so uncommon, as they do not mate very often. The females lay hundreds of eggs in murky reedy areas, but when the young hatch, they are in danger of being eaten by other carniverous creatures under the water, making survival rates very low. Those that do survive on their own instantly start feeding off smaller creatures that live in the silt of the river until they grow larger. These are fresh water creatures only and could be found in murky lakes.
