Bog Snakes are venomous serpentine Rahi.

History

The Bog Snake species was created by the Makuta using Viruses and Liquid Protodermis to be one of the Rahi to inhabit the Matoran Universe.

On Metru Nui, Bog Snakes lived off the muddy shallows of Onu-Metru. When traveling the coast, Onu-Matoran were well-advised to tread carefully so as not to disturb a Bog Snake nest.

When the Great Cataclysm struck, several snakes migrated to the newly formed island of Mata Nui, were they were most often found in the Fau Swamp of the Le-Wahi region. During the deforestation of the Le-Wahi jungle caused by the Bohrok swarms, the Bog Snakes lost the shelter of the trees and were forcefully displaced from their habitat.

After 1,000 years on Mata Nui, the Matoran returned to Metru Nui, and the Bog Snakes followed.

After the Great Spirit Robot was critically damaged in the Battle of Bara Magna, many Bog Snakes emigrated from the Matoran Universe to Spherus Magna.[1]

Abilities and Traits

Bog Snakes are venomous and have extremely bad temperaments. They are natural enemies of the Ghekula and other small reptiles and amphibians that live in the swamps. They are also preyed upon by Nui-Jaga, although they often swarm the scorpion when it attacks, confusing it enough to avoid its stinger tail.

Set Information

The Bog Snake was part of the 10023 Bionicle Master Builder set. It used 46 of the set's 102 pieces. When a gear on the model is turned, the head strikes forward.

Trivia

  • Before the Maori lawsuit against The LEGO Group, the Bog Snakes were called Kuna.
