A serpent in the TCG.

Serpents or cobras are a type of large snakes that come in a variety of colors. The cobras of Azeroth are renowned for their fast-acting venom and swift strikes.[1] They are good swimmers and attack with their fangs and [Corrosive Spit]. Serpents are found in the Wailing Caverns, Zul'Gurub, Silverpine Forest, Zul'Farrak, Sholazar Basin, the Sunken Temple, and in Shadowmoon Valley. Sseratus was the loa serpent god until he was killed by the Drakkari.

A serpent is a family of Cunning pets and are tamable by hunters starting at level 17. Serpents, through use of their [Corrosive Spit] ability, can inflict an armor penetration debuff on their target. This makes them a good choice in raids when player-provided buffs such as [Sunder Armor] or [Expose Armor] are not available.

There are eight different skins available for serpent pets. Most unique of mention is that of the Mob Sunburst Adder, which features a significantly bright red skin. Once popular shortly before the release of The Burning Crusade for their intimidating appearance and novelty. Serpents were not normally tamable for a long time. Sandfury Guardians were briefly tamable as a bug (classified as wind serpents). However, the family was rendered tamable with patch 2.0.
