Quote :
Conan takes time out from the thieving and the plo chops to take on Sith Lord Thulsa Doom, leader of a snake cult, who himself can change into a snake.

So of course our man Thulsa has a few snakes around the premises, including a big fake python with improbable fangs.

Real snakes used in the movie were almost all Boa Constrictors (Boa constrictor), though I spotted at least one Yellow Anaconda (Eunectes notaeus).

I couldn’t get a good look at the snake used as an arrow; my best guess is that it was a Gray Rat Snake (Elaphe obsoleta spiloides).

That gives Robert E. Howard’s Hyborian Age a decidedly New World bent.

Where are the Toltecs? I bet Conan would have some fun with Toltecs. Being crucified on the Tree of Woe has nothing on having your beating heart cut out.

Actually, a true arrow snake would be scientifically named "Psammophis lineolatus." ;-)

The snake that James Earl Jones (Thulsa Doom) changed into looked more like an animatronic version of a half-grown reticulated python.
