A Locksnake guarding skekTek's cabinet

The Locksnake was a serpentine reptile native to Thra, characterized by its golden scales, prominent spines, and beaked head.

Its head and tail worked together as a locking mechanism, with a unique skull structure that allowed it to insert its tail into its mouth and out the back of its head like a buckle, locking its jaws close and keeping the tail end secured. Due to this, it could be used as a living lock, wrapping its body around specially designed knobs on cabinet doors, vigilantly guarding the contents inside.

One specimen was used by skekTek to guard a cabinet containing Mira's essence, but was eaten by skekSil.[1]
