Snake is a typeface family including a formal script (Boa), a display script (Mamba) and a contrasted grotesque (Kobra). Boa is a contemporary legible script typeface. It features a lot of strong typographic details and its moderate angle results from a slow drawing process, leading to soft and smooth curves. Mamba is freely inspired by the Princess Script’s design, drawn by the Barnhart brothers from Chicago in 1887. Contrasting with the Boa version, it was drawn in order to have as many sharp and angular strokes as possible. Its fast and aggressive aesthetic comes from its tight angle and a lack of curves. Kobra is an additional cut bringing a completely different dimension to the typeface family. It is a highly contrasted grotesque suited for large-size and display use. While Mamba and Boa are very flavourful, Kobra is an expressive design but in a more functional and versatile way.

The teenagers are forced to take shelter in a dark cave, unaware that an unsual creature is silently resting there. It is not too long before they discover the terrible thing deep inside the cave, a ferocious and enormous boa. They have no choice but to fight for their lives.

What Christof fails to understand is that Seahaven is only the way the world should be according to him. For Truman, the existence within the show is becoming more like a prison he doesn't know he's been sentenced to.

As a result, both species grows to an enormous size and begins to devour everything on the island, including the humans. The group, the doctor, and the boat captain must escape the island, while avoiding Kobra and Komodo.
