The Ba She, 巴蛇, is a great and greatly feared gigantic snake. Although its preferred prey are elephants, it will happily devour anything and anyone that can not escape its jaws or its coils. In many cases, the Ba She does not even need to eat its victims to devour them: it is infamous for squeezing the flesh off of the victims' bones, and sucking it up through its otherwise iron-hard scales.
The Ba She lives in a cavern known as the "Elephant Bone Powder Hole," in reference to the fact that the place is littered with the remains of its past victims, including elephants, demons and various others. Despite the Ba She's terrifying reputation, the Elephant Bone Powder Hole sees a steady stream of visitors, demon and mortal alike, as the bones of Ba She's previous meals are collected to make heart and stomach tonics.
