Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A tiny venomous snake. It is the longest of the pit vipers.

Bushmasters are medium-sized solitary snakes that only appear in a single biome. They flee contact, but when threatened their venomous bites provide a more than adequate defense - several nasty and unpleasant health effects, followed shortly by complete paralysis and death by suffocation. Don't approach without a crossbow unless your dwarves are wearing full military armor, upon pain of a quick death. Like all other species of snake bushmasters take the whole extent of their lives to reach their maximum size, but because of their bite they're still dangerous as juveniles.

Some dwarves admire bushmasters for their deadly bite.

The ruler of all shrubs and vegetation; a truly fearsome foe! No, really. This thing causes pain, paralysis, nausea, unconsciousness, dizziness, bleeding, and most likely being eaten by the snake.
