Spoiler Alert !

Some of these pictures and descriptions may give away plot details that you might not want to know before watching the film.

Mad Max finds a flying machine in the desert that is protected by a snake (a Carpet Python). He grabs the snake by the neck before it can strike him. Since Carpet Pythons are harmless, I assume we are supposed to belive that it is deadly venomous, like all movie snakes, and lightening fast, too, because the owner of the flying machine pops up and tells him to drop the snake, saying that he's never seen someone so fast they could beat the snake. Pythons are fairly slow for snakes, but they can strike pretty fast so maybe he's right.

Watch it on YouTube.
