Plumed Serpent


This creature is found all over the world, but it's most famous in Mesoamerica. The Plumed Serpent has hairs and feathers, as well as a scaly body. It can grow quite large, and is a fearsome presence in the woods, where it moves quickly on its snakelike belly with spiky little limbs. When it wants to warn something off, it inflates the sacs you see on the sides of its head, and opens up its mouth to a hideous toothy gape. It could run for office in our current political climate.
