So, I encountered something interesting for the first time today. I was watering and harvesting my farm, medium size I would say, consisting of 15 plots arranged as tightly together as possible in 3 rows. I heard hissing near the center of the plots, so I kept backing up and approaching from different angles trying to find the snake. I was down to the last few and had to get closer to collect the last bit of Fibrous Leaves, when sure enough I was bitten and poisoned by a snake that had made his way underneath the plots and was not visible from any angle I could find. He chased me out of the farm (a feature I find to be quite genius), and curled up a short distance away. I am a big fan of how they roam around the islands and can sometimes infiltrate the player’s camp, very realistic and keeps you on your toes. Luckily, I am well stocked on antidote. Also, on a related note, snakes can strike and poison you while flying a gyrocopter if you fly too close to the ground. I was messing around trying to ram a hog (as payback for all the rammings I have received) and got poisoned instead. Lol. Well played, sneaky snakes.
Happy hunting, fellow survivors!
