Japanese, tsuchinoko (ツチノコ or 槌の子), translates to "child of hammer".
In Japanese folklore, the tsuchinoko is a snake-like being. The name tsuchinoko is prevalent in Western Japan, including Kansai and Shikoku; the creature is known as bachi hebi in Northeastern Japan. Tsuchinoko are described as being between 30 and 80 centimetres (12 and 31 inches) in length, similar in appearance to a snake, but with a central girth that is much wider than its head or tail, and as having fangs and venom similar to that of a viper. Legend has it they not only have a taste for alcohol, but that they can grasp their tail in their teeth and roll away like a wheel on steep hills. In modern day Japan, sometimes you may see a "reward" for finding this creature- and they are considered lucky in some areas as a result
