a Coireal

This inoffensive snake inhabited forests and heavy copses; it could be readily identified by the bright yellow bands on its glossy black body. It was generally docile and avoided people. Most bites occurred when witless folk tried to pick up this "pretty snake". Instead, the coireal was happy to hunt large insects. It should have been left alone, for its venom was highly potent, one of the most lethal natural poisons in Middle-earth. Symptoms appeared in one to four hours, resulting in all but certain death from paralysis.
