One of the animals told by lumberjacks that reputedly lived in Wisconsin and Minnesota. This was a highly coloured snake that would traverse the land by biting its tail, forming a hoop and rolling at a fast pace. Despite its comical and bizarre appearance, the Hoop Snake was reported to be poisonous. It would rush towards its prey in its hoop form before launching its deadly fangs at them. It was advised that to escape its attack, one should jump through the hoop confusing it and giving oneself a chance to escape.

Did you find Hoop Snake interesting? Add it to a role playing fantasy game, action or adventure story or draw your own doodle. Could such tales of recent sightings be simply false? Perhaps there is some truth in these serpents, Bigfoots, spirits and other creatures of the paranormal. Watch National Geographic's Paranormal: Bigfoot and decide for yourself. And if you're that way inclined with Bigfoot check him out in the horror movie Night of the Demon (1980). Oh but its not Bigfoot but a Fearsome Critter? Well take a look at them in Fearsome Critters by Richard Svensson or watch the Walt Disney film Paul Bunyan (1958) for some lumberjack folklore. Other contemporary mythical animals appear in the video game Red Dead Redemption: Undead Zombie Nightmare.
