The twelve deva digimon are a collection of perfect-level zodiac animals who all serve, and can evolve into, one of the four "sovereign" digimon.

Snake Deva and servant of Zhuqiaomon. Sandiramon is the "cruelest" of the devas, which is a pretty tired stereotype of snakes. Nothing makes a snake crueler than a wolf or a tiger or a falcon or a porpoise but we all treat those animals like they're supposed to be more noble and heroic? At least that kind of attitude is rapidly fading these days, in my experience.

Sandiramon is a cool enough looking giant, white cobra I guess, and the fact that its hood is just a turtle shell is an interesting detail I don't think I've seen elsewhere on a snake or serpentine monster!
