Details

Spitting sea serpents are a fiercely territorial if not terribly intelligent species that can be a great hazard along coastlines. They are renowned for their ability to spit gobs of acidic spittle onto creatures that threaten them. Their spittle is just as dangerous underwater as through the air—and they have been known to spit at people on the decks of ships and on docks, wharfs, and beaches. Being able to move (slowly) on land, they sometimes hunt along the shore, killing creatures with their spit and then crawling onto land to retrieve the carcass and drag it back to the sea.

Spitting sea serpents dwell in shallow coastal water and and avoid deep water, where they sometimes fall prey to larger sea serpents and other gigantic sea predators such as giant squids or octopi. They are most often found in water well away from high-traffic shipping lanes, because sailors kill them on sight, too. Remote stretches of coast are where spitting sea serpents are most likely to be encountered.
