Aromanita`s snake or Stench snake is a short snake native to the Aromrita continent.
It is most commonly found in Moita where the vegetation is lush.
It feeds on frogs, rodents and certain insects.
The insects it eats are those that come of as foul tasting and/or bad smelling to others.
With these insects it creates a very bad smelling liquid in its body that it can excrete through holes around its neck in order to repel possible threats.
It is however harmless and rarely extends 1 meter in length.
Females are thicker than the males and lays 10-25 egg under rotten foliage once a year. Or even twice if food is plentiful.
Its name as Stench Snake comes as no surprise but the name Aromantias derives from a folktale figure in Aromrita.
By tales Aromantia is a tall and thin hag with several arms wandering the lands with many jugs and baskets on her back.
Her luggage is heavy, making her back curved.
In some tales the jugs are so heavy that she have to support her own weight with her long thin arms, making her seem insect-like in appearance.
She walks bare-feet and is only clothed in worn robes. her face always hidden under a large hood.
Sometimes shes depicted with a staff made of wood. Similar to a shepherds staff.
The jugs she carries are filled with a gas so foul that it can kill the old and sick and force entire villages to be abandoned.
Due to the content of her luggage she herself is always surrounded in a unwashable odor, making it very hard to even be near her.
In the tales she may enter a village asking for food or water and a place to rest.
If one fail to provide she will release the stench and the village will fall to ruin cause of it.
