The Snake Serpent


Source: Welsh Folk-lore

The snake was supposed to be able to understand what men said. A tale
was told me by an aged man at Penrhos, Montgomeryshire, of an event which
took place in the last century. His father, he said, saw a number of
snakes, or nethers, as he called them, basking in the sun, and he said
when passing them, I will make you jump to-morrow. The next day he,
provided with a rod, passed the spot, but no adder could be seen. The
next day he passed again the same spot without his rod, and the man was
now obliged to run for his life, so furiously did the snakes attack him.

Traditions of Flying Snakes were once common in all parts of Wales.
