In the clearing were a number of objects suitable to fend off the snake including a snake-beating club, a snake-beating stick and some Snake-Away.
There was a plaque which read:
"Massive, Man-Eating Snake. This fantastic reptile is one of Plunder Island's most dangerous and beautiful predators."
When Guybrush Threepwood entered the area, he was immediately swallowed whole by the snake forcing him to find a means of escape with the useful items teasingly out of reach.
