Reed snakes, also known as thin snakes[2], were a species of small venomous snakes.[1]


Reed snakes were small and very thin. Their dull green scales allowed them to blend in with grass.[1]


A bite from a reed snake released a deadly toxin into the bloodstream of its prey. Due to their size, they only attacked sleeping prey, including humanoids. The bite from a reed snake was usually fatal and caused great pain in the victim. A neutralize poison spell neutralized the effects of the venom.[1][2]


Reed snakes lived in the temperate grasslands of Pelleor’s Prairie in the Backlands region of the Western Heartlands.[1]


Reed snakes hunted during the night. They spent the daytime hours hiding and sleeping, hiding within long grasses or reeds.[1]
