Stone snake is a type of monster in ADOM. They are uncommon monsters that can pass through stone and closed doors. Their bite, should it damage the PC, can both poison and slow him/her down.

Stone snakes can see invisible and in darkness, and can smash doors. They are chaotic, which is unusual for naturally occurring animals like snakes.

Like other creatures of stone, stone snakes can be damaged quite effectively by either zapping a wand of digging or casting the Mystic Shovel spell at them. Pick axes and the unpick axe will always score critical hits against them.

Monster memory[]

This creature of the earth slithers through solid stone as easily as others pass through air. They strike with the strength of the rock they inhabit, knowing a safe retreat through adjoining stone will provide a chance to heal and strike again. Their skins greatly resemble the rock they inhabit, but nobody is certain whether this is a protective coloration or if they are actually made of stone.
