"It's a Deep Python. Get close to it and stun it. If you fail, it'll getcha!"

Deep Pythons, also known as Sea Snakes, are enemies from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. They appear in Pinnacle Rock in Great Bay, where they have overrun the underwater cavern; they inhabit horizontal alcoves in the cliffside of the abyss of Pinnacle Rock. To defeat them, Link must transform into Zora Link, and hit them with his Barrier-Attack, or use the Zora boomerangs.

Some Deep Pythons hold Zora Eggs captive. If Link defeats all of them, he rescues the Seahorse's partner.

The sailor Gulliver often tells tales about his journeys at sea. In one story he states "When I fought the sea snakes at Pinnacle Rock! Wait a minute... That wasn't me!", in an obvious reference to Majora's Mask.
