Giant Poisonous Snake Monster

Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much clicked on to the 62nd episode of our beast series. We’ve covered the snake, we’ve covered the poisonous snake, we’ve covered the constrictor snake and now we’re taking a look at yet another snake ladies and gentlemen.

We’re looking at the giant poisonous snake today. Which sounds just terrifying. It is found in the basic rules and considered to be cr one quarter and provides you 50 experience points on a kill cr:1/4(50xp). Now let’s take a quick look at this big guy stats and talk about them a little bit.


So the giant poisonous snake is considered to be a medium beast that is unaligned. AC of 14 which is just great, 11 hit points calculated by rolling 2d8 and adding 2, a speed of 30 feet and a swim speed of 30 feet as well. Which is always nice to see.

  • TYPE: Medium Beast, Unaligned
  • AC: 14
  • HP: 11(2D8+2)
  • Speed: 30ft, swim30ft

Taking a look at its stats there. You will be blown away at his dexterity. Getting a +4 to dexterity heck yeah great stuff. Not the brightest, not the most charismatic but certainly the most dexterous very nice stuff.

  • STR: 10(+0)
  • DEX: 18(+4)
  • CON: 13(+1)
  • INT: 2(-4)
  • WIS: 10(+0)
  • CHA: 3(-4)

Under skills you’ll see +2 bonus to perception and under senses you’ll see a 10 feet sense of blindsight and a passive perception of 12 which is pretty good. Let’s take a quick look at his actions here.

Actions Of 5e giant poisonous snake

The giant poisonous snake can only take one action and that is a bite attack.

Bite: The 5e giant poisonous snake able to make a melee weapon attack: +6 to hit, reach 10 ft. which actually has some range on it now very nice stuff, can only target one creature. Also, Hit: 6 (1d4 + 4) piercing damage, and also the target must make a DC 11 Constitution saving throw, even it is taking 10 (3d6) poison damage on a failed save, or else half as much damage on a successful one.

Very cool stuff! i really like the idea of there being kind of like a pit of these guys as a trap, i think that’d be pretty cool or having them chase down the party in undersea canals or riverways. I think that’d be kind of cool as well.
