Oooh, great chapter of The Dark Lord

And I like the navigation through the Eons/Eras/Periods, edfel.

That makes it sound like a cypher in which the letters are rotated by the amount of waterottermolpies in a particular river(small)
Yes. I could have gone with ROOTTer, but I liked ROTOTTer better!

(that said, I'm an Africaist too and I think we've just got the snake identification wrong)
I still think Calabar is the best fit. Yes, Wikipedia says they live in rainforests, but if you check the citation for that sentence, it directs to a book published in 1987. In fact, it looks like most of the article is taken from that book, Living Snakes of the World in Color
. You know a source might be a little outdated when it has the phrase In Color
in its title.
I did a little roundup of some sources of my own, and most tend to say that yes, Calabars like the rainforest, but they may also be found in other areas:"It has been found in rocky secondary forest and overgrown plantations with dense undergrowth." 
"West and Central Africa is home to a strange little snake, the Calabar Ground Boa (or is it a python?), which inhabits rainforests and plantations." 
"They are found in Africa and make their home in rocky forests or areas with thick vegetation." 
So I think it's not unreasonable to assume that a Calabar python could
be found in the area Cuegan is currently traversing, either under the "overgrown plantation" or "rocky forest" habitat.
Oh, and this one is the best, emphasis mine:"The Calabar burrowing python (Charina [Calabaria] reinhardtii) or "boa," as perhaps it should now be called, is a commonly encountered species in tropical rain forest and cultivated areas in western Africa. Known for its habit of rolling into a defensive ball, this inoffensive burrowing species is believed to cause young women to become pregnant, according to a Cameroon myth (Lawson, 1993)." 
Perhaps Jabberwalky should be revised to "the snakebees that seek your snatch"?
What can I say, I love me some splotchy brown snake that might get me pregnant.
All together now: THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!
