This article is about an older version of DF.
A snake-like creature living deep underground. Its head is covered in armor so that is resembles the head of a dragon.

Helmet snakes are small snakes that carry a horrific venom. Any body part bitten by a helmet snake will cause a bevy of symptoms, with the part eventually becoming necrotic and falling off unless treated quickly.Verify

Helmet snakes can be put to good use as exotic pets if you can manage to capture them safely. Helmet snake poison can quickly cripple an invader with constant pain and vomiting, making him much easier to finish off.

Helmet snakes are perfectly safe to eat, however. Eating the venom itself is also perfectly safe, probably due to the way the game handles poisons, just as many real-world venoms have no adverse effects when eaten instead of being injected into the blood.
