A huge monster in the form of a bushmaster.

Like their smaller relatives, giant bushmasters have a venomous bite that can kill a dwarf in one go. Of course, they're also large enough to just tear them off completely without bothering with poison; after all, massive blood loss causes death even quicker than paralytic suffocation. Luckily, they're not aggressive, and will flee contact with your dwarves, despite being more than four times as large. Excellent pit creatures, if you can capture and tame them. Strangely they are considered exotic mounts, so if giant bushmasters are arriving onto your map as part of an elven siege, be warned - they are extremely dangerous. Luckily, like all other species of snake they take the extent of their lives to reach their maximum size, but because of their bite bushmaster juveniles are still extremely dangerous.

Some dwarves admire giant bushmasters for their deadly bite.
