- quote -
Hebigami (蛇神; snake god), Tobyo or Tonbogami.
As you can see by the name, these snakes were not typical snakes, but where thought to be snake gods with the ability to possess humans.



In many descriptions they do not even resemble snakes, but are more like great earthworms.

Kagawa 香川県
shiro mamushi 白蝮 white viper
This animal is also called オハッスン Ohassun.
It is the messenger of the deity and thus never hunted.
