Onyx serpents are magical snakes as black and shiny as the gems bearing their name. An onyx serpent that encounters prey usually tries to get in a few bites and let the poison finish them off. Once an onxy serpent has feed, it slithers off to rest and sunbathe and digest for about a week or two. If it is not hungry (which is most of the time) the onyx serpent will attempt to animate a tiny animal it killed to defend it. If it encounters potential prey but is full and has a defender, it simply ignores the creature and goes on sunbathing, obsorbing light with its shiny black scales.
 
COMBAT
Poison(ex):Initial damage 1d2 strength, secondary 1d4 con, fortitude save dc:13
Swallow whole(ex):An onyx serpent can swallow a tiny size or smaller creature after a succesful grapple check. Aftert that the creature takes 1d4 acid damage and 1 bludeoning damage from the onyx serpent's stomache. It can cut itself out by dealing 2 points of slashing or peircing damage to the serpents stomache. After it leaves, a muscular action closes the hole, so another swallowed creature must cut its own way out.
Animate Animal(sp):Once per day, as cast by a 1st level necromancer.
