Ekans is a very common sight in grassland, etc. It slithers silently and stealthily through the grass and eats the eggs of birds such as Pidgey and Spearow whole. It can freely detach its jaw to swallow large prey. It can become too heavy to move, however. It flicks its tongue in and out to sense danger in its surroundings or to detect the scent of prey. To hunt, it sneaks through the grass without making a sound and strikes unsuspecting prey from behind. When first born, it has no poison, so its bite is painful but harmless. Ekans curls itself up in a spiral while it rests. Assuming this position allows it to quickly respond to a threat from any direction with a glare from its upraised head. The older it gets, the longer it grows. At night, it wraps its long body around tree branches to rest.
