Cobra flowers draw their name from the snake-like shape of their central stalks. The plant looks like a patch of flowers and other vegetation and behaves in much the same way, rooting in fertile soil and soaking up sunlight to feed itself. However, the cobra flower likes a little meat every now and then, especially in the spring as it blooms and in the fall as it prepares for the long winter. When it senses small game or an unwary humanoid, the central stalk rears up and unfolds a cobra-like hood to reveal a fanged maw. Its bite is fierce, but the bile it injects into a wound can dissolve flesh and bone. It is this bile that allows the cobra flower to feed as its roots soak up the dissolved prey.
