Snakes in the Grass

These big orange gopher snakes are the robust wild cousins of the tamer city snakes being introduced into Conrad. These ophidians slither merrily down gopher holes, gobbling the tasty rodents as they go. Farmers hereabouts are cautious about the proposed introduction of them in large numbers. Although they do eat 3 to 5 times their weight in gophers every week, they have been known to coil themselves around farm machinery, draining the oil in a little-understood communal frenzy, after which they flop drunkenly across the countryside, often doing great damage to property. Understand that these beasts can reach up to 30 meters (3000 cm) in length!
