Amphisbaena

The creature known as Amphisbaena resembles a normal snake - only much larger and with a head at either end. Smaller individuals usually reach over ten feet length, but even exemplars with over twenty feet are known. Amphisbaenae are poisonous, although their size allows them also to constrict their victims. They can survive the loss of one of their heads and have a special sense to detect warm-blooded creatures to prey on.1 Apparently, the Amphisbaena also dwells in the jungles of Lustria.2
