This small, gray snake had a distinctive ruff of loose scales that gave off a faint, odd rattling sound when the serpent was startled or about to strike. Its potent venom caused massive internal hemorrhage, causing tremendous shock and often death. The shaking asp (S."Amcwast") was a native of Rhudaur, the region in eastern Eriador between the Mitheithel and Bruinen Rivers.
