Bestiary entry Edit

Page 1: Observations Edit

Living in dry mountainous regions, the mouth of the python has developed its distinctive narrowed shape to better probe the rocky cracks where its prey make their nests. From the neck down to midriff, its body is split into two identical curves, each containing an elongated stomach with powerful digestive capabilities. With these can it process large quantities of food despite its slender form. Its bony scales are azure in hue, and much resemble lusterless metal.

Page 2: On the Dissection of Beasts Edit

Take the Serpent in all her Varieties: surely, Her most salient Feature is to be found in the Curvature of her Fangs. Lo, the Great Serpent's Fang, as it is called, is as the most delicate Carving of a great Snake unto itself. The merest Glance upon its Form maketh one feel as though the Serpent holds you in its Eye, and you are lost. Perhaps this accounts for the Popularity of the Serpent Motif amongst Criminals and those of a violent Disposition.

Etymology Edit

Pythons are non-venomous snakes that reside in Africa, Asia, and Australia. Although pythons have teeth, they kill their prey by constriction, squeezing that causes asphyxiation. Several species of pythons are among the largest snakes in the world, including the reticulated python that holds the record for the world's longest snake at 10 meters.
