Indiana Jones, popularly called Indy, is famously afraid of snakes, but Steven Spielberg is most definitely not. The epic movie “Raiders of the lost Ark” depicted the mass scene referring to Snake Island which is located in Brazil. The movie had roughly 2000 snakes on set for shooting the scene where Indy and Sallah descend into the Well of Souls to unearth the Ark—only to discover it fully coated with slithering asps.
However, the director was unsatisfied since the 2000 snakes did not cover the entire set. Spielberg believed that they would need at least 7000 additional snakes to make the film convincingly terrifying, so he had the producers search all the pet stores in London (where the film was being shot at Elstree Studios) and elsewhere in Europe to get enough of the writhing reptiles. They picked up a few days later with the same scene, this time with 10,000 snakes, much to Spielberg's delight.
What he might not have known, though, is that far, far away from London is a real-life "Snake Island" - that might make Indiana sweat.
A Brazilian Snake Island
What more could an adventurous traveler want for in an unusual location? Aside from, you know, the lack of genuine grave danger. Because Snake Island isn't named "Snake Island" because it's shaped like a snake or because someone once saw a rainbow boa hanging from a tree.
So Just How Venomous Is It?
Oh Good, There's More Than Just One
We're all quite excited since Sauvage's snail-eaters are non-venomous and hence relatively harmless to anything that doesn't have a shell, plus they have a terrible habit of leaving a silvery slime trail everywhere they go. Even so, Sauvage's snail eaters and golden lanceheads are both golden-colored, thus the Sauvage's snail-eater might still make you act impulsively and back up into a golden lancehead, causing you to be bitten.
