The Snake is a species of animal found in Red Dead Redemption 2.


Snakes will attempt to flee from the player, and horses will always be spooked by snakes. Most snakes are venomous and will bite the player if provoked. A Health Cure will remove the venom from the player.


The snake can be found in virtually all locations, including Guarma. Higher concentrations tend to be along the eastern regions, especially Bluewater Marsh in Bayou Nwa.



The Fer-de-Lance snake is not exclusive to the remote island of Guarma. It can be found on the main map in the Stillwater Creek area just southwest of Thieves Landing. A known spawn point is on the land directly east of the pool of water where you find the Legendary Redfin Pickerel.
