Wulgol

One of the world's heaviest and longest snakes, it looks like any other Nimpogol. This creatures venomous bite makes it a great threat to anything that could fit in its mouth. And its ability to heal from nearly any injury, even re-growing from a severed head, makes this beast particularly formidable.

Basic Information

Ecology and Habitats

They live in swamps, marshes, and slow-moving streams, mainly in tropical rainforests and river basins. They are cumbersome on land, but stealthy and sleek in the water. Their eyes and nasal openings are on top of their heads, allowing them to lie in wait for prey while remaining nearly completely submerged.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Primarily aquatic, they eat a wide variety of prey, almost anything they can manage to overpower, including fish, amphibians, birds, a variety of mammals, and other reptiles. Particularly large Nimpogol may consume large prey such as pigs, deer, goats, and alligators, but such large meals are not regularly consumed. Being primarily nocturnal, they tend to spend most of their life in or around water. They have the potential to reach high speeds when swimming. They tend to float beneath the surface of the water with their snouts above the surface. When prey passes by or stops to drink, the Nimpogol strikes (without eating or swallowing it) and coils around it with its body. It waits for its venom to render the prey unconscious, then it swallows it whole.
