Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The hoop snake derives from a piece of Australian folklore designed to scare tourists. It is described as a snake that bites its tail in order to roll in a hoop and travel at an incredibly high speed before uncurling and throwing itself at a victim.
  • According to the online Encyclopedia Brittanica, the Ouroboros is an:
    • emblematic serpent of ancient Egypt and Greece represented with its tail in its mouth, continually devouring itself and being reborn from itself. A gnostic and alchemical symbol, Ouroboros expresses the unity of all things, material and spiritual, which never disappear but perpetually change form in an eternal cycle of destruction and re-creation. [1]
  • The hoop snake is able to be first action stunned, if you attack it, you are able to instantly stun it and pick it up, before it is able to attack you back.
