Tiny Snake Ball
Pitter snakes are tiny blind snake species found in burrows underground in A-Planets. They are a parasitic species, burying themselves within godrills and shorps and sucking their blood until they die, then eating the remains. TSB stands for Tiny Snake Ball, referring to the ball they create when the snakes sleep together at nights.
Pitter snakes have a very thin body, just over a cm thick. Their scales are a dark green, and appear greyish underground. They have a thin head, with eyeballs covered in scales which render them pretty much blind, however they technically can see. Their mouth is a small hole on the front of its head which has a small jaw, like a torch lamprey.
Genetics and Reproduction
Pitter snakes lay hundreds of eggs every day, which they lay in the burrows with every other snake. These eggs almost never hatch, since the other snakes tend to eat them to survive. Only when they find a big prey on the surface do the eggs have time to hatch.
Ecology and Habitats
Pitter snakes live in pre-existing burrows, they have no capabilities to dig out burrows themselves, since they're too small and weak to build burrows the sizes that they need. They have adapted themselves to sense vibrations from the surface, replacing the need for sight which they lost.
Dietary Needs and Habits
Pitter snakes are carnivorous, they can eat prey hundreds times the size of themselves. Pitter snakes sense vibrations from the surface, acting upon that they crawl out of the burrows and then burrow themselves inside the creature, slowly drinking its blood until it dies. Then, all the snakes emerge from the burrow and consume the dead prey in its entirety.
Perception and Sensory Capabilities
Pitter snakes, when underground in their burrows, sense vibrations from the surface. This sense is heightened since they cannot see, and finding prey is much easier.
Symbiotic and Parasitic organisms
They are a parasitic species, they kill off their prey purely for their benefit so they stay alive.
