Snake Island: The Ideal Location for Indy 5


“What the Hell is Snake Island?” I hear you say; well take a seat children and I shall tell you a tale.

We all know that Indiana Jones is not a big fan of snakes, in fact, he absolutely hates them.

So while sifting through the internet recently I found out about a real place called Snake Island and I think it would be an interesting location to see in the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones film.

According to a rather cool YouTube documentary from Vice (which you can watch below) Snake Island has “the highest concentration of one of the most venomous snakes in the world and is located about 90 miles off the coast of Santos, Brazil, on a small, craggy chunk of land.

It’s known as Ilha da Queimada Grande, or Snake Island, and it’s the only place you will find 2,000 or so of the wholly unique golden lancehead viper, or Bothrops insularis. When you step ashore, with a keen eye you spot one of these snakes roughly every 10 to 15 minutes after clearing the base of the island, and as many as one every six square yards in other parts of the island. This means, as you are walking through the waist-high brush, even with some good boots on, it’s like walking through a minefield that moves and, instead of blowing you into chunks, slowly paralyzes you and liquefies your insides, as the golden lancehead does to the migrating birds it feeds on in the treetops.

I like the idea of having some religious artifact hidden on the island where Indy has to overcome his biggest fears to capture it; it would be a nice throwback to Raiders and I can only imagine his reaction to an entire island of snakes! He’d probably pass out… I know I would.
