Notes The Jaculus is a type of deadly snake, which kills by launching itself from trees with incredible force and piercing through the bodies of its victims. Being an ambusher by nature, once the Jaculus has landed it is effectively helpless until it can scale another position of height, so it tends to wriggle away into the nearest cover or flee. Since their body is in effect a living javelin, it is capable of inflicting an Impale special effect but instead of remaining in the wound, they pass straight through. Source: Mythic Rome 159
