Snakes are one of the first animals one will
experience on Rubi-Ka, but their diversity and
adaptability make them a non-stop threat through all
stages of a settler's career. Significantly large and
agile updates of their Earth kin, these animals are the
third largest terraforming predators (overall) on
Rubi-Ka, though the largest and most dangerous kinds
would actually be larger than the wolves.
There are several varieties of snakes, including
snakes, adders, pythons, boas, and special rare breeds
known as sappers. The sappers feature fearsome
antennae, enhanced vision and speed, and larger fangs.
Found only in the most remote zones, it is unclear if
these breeds are deliberate modifications or mutations
in response to Rubi-Ka's environment.
