The Weird snake. was a tomato in disguise that was released with the Monkey Madness I quest.
Monkey Madness I was notorious for its idiosyncratic development and coding compared to the rest of the game. When the quest was released an unused copy of each character from the quest was also added. For unknown reasons, the copy of the snake had been replaced by a tomato. A year later, it was given an official name and examine as a Weird snake.
It is unknown whether the disguised tomato was the legacy of a mechanic cut before launch, or if it was just a joke by developers. Regardless, the unused NPC copies were all removed in a hidden update in 2007. As a result, it has never been present in Old School RuneScape.
