Featured Animal Action

Black Crow
In several scenes, a black crow flies and lands either on a rooftop or on the ground. This action was accomplished with two trainers and a very smart bird. One trainer released the bird to fly to another trainer holding a perch and a treat. Food was also scattered on the landing areas to prompt the bird to stay.

Snake
When two actors walk across the desert to get help, they encounter a snake. The snake crawls along the sand and then sits still as the actors approach. The snake is shown striking at the actor’s leg. A red snake was filmed naturally lying and moving on the ground as a trainer stood nearby. The shot of the snake striking at the actor is stock footage that was inserted into the scene
