The snake is a poisonous monster, and is one of the more common foes in the world of Desktop Dungeons. Aside from its poisonous bite, the snake is otherwise a mediocre monster with no special properties. Anyone who focuses on spellcasting to bring them down or who has the Glyph: HALPMEH HALPMEH glyph to cure poison will find snakes to be an easy form of XP. If you do not have a method to cure poison, you should fight and slay snakes just before leveling up, or else try to kill them without suffering attacks. Having to use a healing potion just to cure poison is a waste of a potion in most cases and you should avoid having to do so if at all possible.
