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.
  • 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.
