Origins

The Tsuchinoko is a creature with origins in Japanese mythology, legend and folklore.  The earliest records of these serpentine creatures show up in the Kojiki, the oldest surviving book in Japan. These records date back to the 7th century.

Appearance

The Tsuchinoko looks like a normal snake in appearance but with a central girth that is much wider than its head or tail, a neck with black, grey, or brown scaly skin and as having fangs and venom similar to that of a viper. It is often described as being between 30 and 80 centimetres long.

Behavior

When threatened by enemies, the Tsuchinoko would bite its tail and roll away like a hoop, just like the Hoop Snake. They have a liking for alcohol.

Abilities

Aside from their natural venom, Tsuchinoko can jump up to a meter to attack their prey. Some Tsuchinoko can speak, though they have a tendency to lie when speaking.
