The Reticulated Slishbane (slisbus perreti) is a vibrantly patterned Slishbane found throughout the Bay of Bengal. It is especially fond of human flesh, and kills the most people of any Slishbane while in its terrestrial state.
The Reticulated Slishbane is a vibrant browny-orange, with a diamond pattern along its back. It's skin is famed for its beauty, and will sell for up to ₩120,000 due to the difficulty ordained in procuring it. It's underbelly is a dull brown, while its head is a mishmash of splotches of brown, grey, black, orange and rustic red.
The Reticulated Slishbane starts life as a 10-20cm long juvenile, in an environment such as the Ganges Delta. They stay here for 7-9 months, growing to around 70cm in length, before travelling inland into the lush forests of the region. Here they will live for 5-9 years, preying on deer, snakes, monkeys, birds, Tigers and people. Some have been known to take on elephants. During this period they grow to about 8m long, before venturing out to sea where they lose their distinctive colours, becoming a mottly light-grey.
