Water snakes are monsters in ADOM. As their name implies, they are water-dwelling reptiles with poisonous attacks. Note that they are not restricted to fighting in water (reflected in their in-game description).

Water snakes can very rarely spawn in the dungeons randomly and the only guaranteed location to find them is Water Temple. It is also possible to summon them during pool-sipping.

Water snakes are vulnerable to fire and can be tamed with Music as all other animals.

Monster memory[]

Sliding through its watery home, this snake lashes out at opponents, inviting them to a watery grave. These snakes are at home in water, sometimes appearing to be made of the substance themselves, but can travel and fight well on solid surfaces when the need arises.
