The surfent (AKA "fur serpent") is a 10-foot-long python-like snake. The surfent, however, is covered in a soft spotted fur. It also has a set of insect-like antenna on its head. The antenna gives the surfent the mutation of echolocation, giving it a +2 to hit bonus in combat.
Unlike other snakes, surfents are very aggressive and will actively enter combat. Its primary form of attack is through a bite. Upon a successful hit, the surfent will deal 1d4 hit points of damage. A bitten character must them make a save versus poison. Failure means they will die in 1d10 turns (class 12 poisonous venom with delay). Surfents also use their incredible size to wrap around and constrict a victim. If successful, it will crush a victim for 2d8 hit points of damage. The constriction continues on subsequent rounds.
Surfents are usually found in muddy/swampy areas. They are often used as guardians by wizards, and a pit of surfents acts as a handy way to dispose of troublesome meddlers.
