There are no real snakes in this Tarzan film, but there is a lot of snake art.
Tarzan helps protect the location of a secret hidden African city that is run by a tribe of brunette warrior women with bows and spears whose men are kept as slaves to work in the mines. The women worship a god whose symbols are the sun, a tree, and a snake. The beautiful Amazon women are certainly impressive with their leopard-skin mini dresses, but I also enjoyed how they decorate their city with lots of depictions of snakes, which are all apparently made of gold - the statue of their god is holding a snake and there are rattlesnakes on the base of the statue like something out of the Maya. There is a snake on their warning gong, a huge snake stretched out along a wall, another one wrapped around a pillar, and we see a man stealing a gold snake bracelet from the treasure room.
