Shadow snakes were large, venomous snakes that lived in the jungles of southern Faerûn.[3] They may have had some connection to the Shadowfell.[1][3] Yuan-ti were said to keep shadow snakes as pets.[3]

Description[edit | edit source]

Shadow snakes were twice as long as a human and had greyish-black skin that was shadowy in substance.[3]

Combat[edit | edit source]

Shadow snakes were ambush predators that surprised prey by stepping through shadows.[1][4] The bite of this venomous snake could turn a victim's limb into a shadowy substance.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

Shadow snakes were thought to have been the creation of the god Zehir. For this reason, they were greatly revered by the yuan-ti.[5]
