Snakes (also known as serpents) were creatures with a cylindrical limbless body, a forked tongue that allowed them to smell, sharp fangs, and slitted eyes. They could grow as long as three meters and become as thick as the arm of a Kiffar. They moved smoothly over surfaces with a distinctive twisting motion. When growing angry, snakes would start hissing and thrashing. Some of them were venomous, and their bite could be painful. The Anacondans were a species of sentient snakelike beings.
The swamp-covered planet of Dagobah was home to at least one species of snakes, called the vine snakes. Some small specimens even resided in the hut of Yoda. One such creature startled Luke Skywalker when he was about to leave Dagobah to rescue his friends Leia Organa and Han Solo. Skywalker also encountered a snake on Rodia when he opened the door of Huulik's mausoleum. Black snakes were also present on the planet of Dathomir. Moraband was home to a giant Sith serpent that, on closer inspection, was made of hundreds of smaller snakes.
During her time as bounty hunter, the Dark Jedi Asajj Ventress wore shoulder plates bearing an illustration of a twisted black snake. At one point, Ventress also wore a necklace crafted to look like a snake.
