Reticulated Flyer: (H. Serpens Volans, H. Serpens Reticulatis Volans) Related to the Serpent, this is essentially a 'jumbo' sized version, but with the ability to extend its ribs so as to flatten its body into a sort of airfoil shape. While it cannot actually fly, it can glide by dropping from some high point such as the upper branches of a tree to sail through the air considerable distances. The Reticulated Flyer is characterised by a reticulated or spotted pattern on its skin, as well as by a particularly aggressive temperament matched only by the virulence of its poison.
