Amphisbaena (Dungeons & Dragons)
|Source books||Serpent Kingdoms, Tome of Horrors 1, 1E Monster Manual 1, Menace Manual, Monstrous Manual|
The amphisbaena first appeared in the original first edition Monster Manual (1977), under the "Snake, giant" entry.
As in myth, the amphisbaena is a giant serpent with a head at both ends. It travels by grasping one head in the other and rolling like a hoop. The fangs of the Amphisbaena are so poisonous that anything successfully bitten by it dies instantly. It is immune to cold-based attacks.
Amphisbaenae cannot speak, being animals.
They are neutral in alignment.
