Skin a sidewinder scale
The swiftly writhing coils and flared, triangular head tells one all they need to know about the sidewinder: it is fast, and it is deadly.  Scales as white as ivory flakes proceed in a sinuous pattern down the sidewinder's back, the muscles beneath undulating from side to side to propel it forward.

Hunting Strategies

Sidewinders naturally spawn in the desert area outside the Sanctum of Scales, and can also be summoned (rarely) by pale scaled shapers.

They have a special ability to wrap around their prey, rooting the victim in place.

Other Information

They can appear in several varieties, including "a sand-hued desert sidewinder" and "a white sidewinder".
