|Appearance||A serpent with heads on either end of its body|
The Amphisbaena is a creature with origins in Greek and Roman mythology, legend and folklore. It would later gain connections to Medieval European mythology, legend and folklore.
This creature has two snake heads, one on each end. Sometimes, it is depicted with legs.
When it properly positions its body, the Amphisbaena has the capacity for a 360-degree range of vision. In addition, it is not uncommon for one end of the Amphisbaena to bite the other end, making a hoop formation that allows it to roll around for quicker travel, much like the Hoop Snake.
