Wailing Caverns (Dungeon)
Makes sounds when clicked.
To get this snake to spawn you must have the quest Preemptive Methods, which is a one-time quest offered by Nalpak just inside the dungeon entrance. A Serpentbloom Snake will spawn each time you harvest a Serpentbloom inside the instance. Note that these snakes are level 1 but the rest of the NPCs in the dungeon are higher level (scaling from approximately 8 to 31).

28Shadowmoon Valley - Outland
Found along parts of the northernmost rim of the zone, including north of Coilskar Point, and a section north of the Altar of Sha'tar extending east to the Black Temple. Has a green-purple aura that is lost upon taming.

In the room with the first boss, Slad'ran. Crafty Snakes seem to be much less common than the dominant Fanged Pit Vipers and there may only be one in the room. The green and red variants do not make sounds when clicked, but the brown and black ones do.
