Snake Weed Lrg 54f6aedacd7a3


Snakeweed is an enemy of the Ninja Turtles. Formerly a thug from New York City known as Snake, he is now a giant mutant plant that was mutated with the Mutagen when he was surrounded with plants. He blames his mutation on the Ninja Turtles. Snakeweed debuts in Rise of the Turtles Part Two.


Snake and The Kraang were outside guarding from the Ninja Turtles. Then a van came and then crashed through the building's wall. This made Snake fall on the floor with weed surrounding him. Then suddenly, a canister of Mutagen came flying and landed on Snake. The Mutagen canister cracked open and then mutated Snake into a mutant plant known as Snakeweed.
