The oddballs of the naga race, this is a breed that has adapted to a life of burrowing underground, and as such their eyes are vestigital or vaguely functional at best. Typically of human size or slightly smaller, they feed on small animals and Tinies, and are known to break into ant and termite hills to gorge on the insects and nutritious grubs inside. Some species large enough to get away with it may tackle on bigger game, and cripple their quarry with a paralyzing bite to safely drag it underground, or store it for later

Overall not much is known about this variety, since they are rather shy and reclusive, and prefer to operate unseen. They display extreme agoraphobia, and will refuse to emerge to the surface unless it's some dark, cramped space.


Based on some real-life families of tiny burrowing snakes Very Happy

Cute and sensible, but I can't see a large market for them.
Still, I'd believe in them.

I agree with that Dante said, they'd be ok as a side thing in a story, but I can't see them being the focus.

I think they sound rather interesting myself. In fact I think they would fit into the biology of Felarya very well in the right place. I can see them living in the tunnels underneath the Bach in Bulvon Wood.

Also they would have a very large pred sense probably, to counteract their blindness.

Oh yes. Nice idea. Or a very keen sense of smell or hearing to help them detect prey underground.

I can just see a tiny Blind Naga burrowing her (or his) way into a underground nest of Neera and having a good feed.
