He could scarcely make out just what he was seeing in the shadows. It's skin had a wet shimmer to it, and it was cracked in many places, resembling the scales of a serpent.
The mouth was large, round and open and seemed to lead into a darkness blacker than the night. It had no nose to speak of, but two holes that widened and narrowed with each tortured breath. The eyes were large, almond shaped and a smoky gray color. It made a low, hoarse sound that he could not describe."
