A small snake with ridged scales and a powerful venomous bite.

Adders are venomous snakes found in many temperate biomes. Adder bites can produce strong pain, nausea, blisters, and swelling, though they are not usually fatal. Adders are distinct for being the smallest non-vermin creatures.

While adders can be tamed they will not reproduce. Butchering an adder only produces a skull, making them worthless to your meat industry. Female adders are egg-layers, producing 3-10 edible eggs with regularity, and providing significantly more food than would be expected from such a small creature.
