"Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes?"
―Indiana Jones[src]

A snake is a legless reptile. Snakes come in many varieties, from small to large, non-venomous and venomous, and can be found on six continents. In many human cultures, snakes, though not domesticated, but often seen as a pest to livestock, were made a part of myths and legends.

Adventures with snakes[]

Indiana Jones suffered from a fear of snakes brought on from when he fell into a crate of them aboard the Dunn and Duffy Circus Train in 1912 while trying to evade Fedora, from whom Indy had taken the Cross of Coronado.[1]

Jones frequently ran across snakes in his adventures.

In 1935, while camping along the way to Pankot Palace, Jones and Willie Scott had a nocturnal encounter with a large python and "Snake Surprise" formed part of the menu at the palace.[2] Later that year, Jones discovered the Temple of the Forbidden Eye, which had a chamber filled with snakes, including one gigantic cobra.[3]

In 1936, after escaping from the Hovitos, Jones had a close encounter with a boa constrictor named Reggie, who shared his seat in Jock Lindsey's plane. Later that year, Jones discovered that the Well of the Souls was filled with dangerous asps, and even a cobra.[4]

In 1957, a rat snake came to Jones' unlikely aid as Mutt Williams used it as a rope to pull Marion Ravenwood and Jones to safety from a dry sand pit.[5]
