"Nui-Jaga very hugebig. Bog snakes are many, but small. So what to do when hungry Rahi comes around? Bog snakes come from in front, behind, uptree, downtree, all at once. Nui-Jaga gets confused. Too many for even sharpstinger to stop."

Bog Snakes are venomous serpentine Rahi.
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.[WoH, Ch. 6]
After 1,000 years on Mata Nui, the Matoran returned to Metru Nui, and the Bog Snakes followed.
Abilities and Traits
Bog Snakes are venomous and have extremely bad temperaments.[BEU, p. 14] 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.[BC4, p. 60]
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.
- Before the Maori lawsuit against The LEGO Group, the Bog Snakes were called Kuna.
