Behind the scenes[]

The term asp, when regarding Egyptian snakes, does not denote a particular species of snake, although a viper found in Italy and France is commonly known as an asp, or European asp. Traditionally, the term "asp" refers to the Egyptian cobra (Naja haje), the same snake that Cleopatra used to commit suicide. However the cobras that were used in the Well of Souls scene were monacled cobras (Naja kaouthia) of Southeast Asia.
