Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
Spoiler Alert !

Some of these pictures and descriptions may give away plot details that you might not want to know before watching the film.
Indiana Jones Indiana Jones Indiana Jones
Camped in the jungle at night, an annoying woman who's not much of a camper (played by Kate Capshaw) starts screaming when she grabs a fruit bat hanging on a line instead of her laundry and then finds a monitor lizard sitting on a branch. Indiana Jones tells her to sleep closer to him for safety. She thinks he's making a move on her and says she'd be safer sleeping with a snake, and just then a python crawls around her neck. She throws it to the ground, thinking it's the trunk of an elephant that's been grabbing her. Jones is freaked out, of course, because he hates snakes, even those part of statues he's robbing as in picture number 3.

Indiana Jones and his very annoying side-kicks Willie Scott and Short Round are sitting at the table of a Maharajah when a servant brings in a large silver tray with a python wrapped around a centerpiece for them to eat. It's a fake snake. When it is cut open eels crawl out of it. I don't know what they are, but they look real. Save room for dessert because tonight we're having chilled monkey brains!  In the Hindu version of this scene they would be served a side of beef.
