  • Inside the cave there is an electrified snake in a hole, which you must deal with it in order to go further. You can either fight it, or next to it there is a large rock that you can push over (10 Muscle) to seal it in the hole and avoid the fight.
    • Note that despite claiming an increase in medicine (but not venom), this snake provides neither venom nor medicine to Snake Oilers (although it should).


  • The entrance to the cave features a pattern of aligned rocks on the ground, which the devs confirm are not a hidden puzzle.
  • At the end of the cave there is an El Vibrato portal, which leads to the Bizarre Ruin.
