1. There were 58 snakes (ranging in length from 3' - 12') inside the cabin that guests walked through. (Yikes...no snake needs to be 12' long. Just sayin'.)
2. If some of the snakes in the cabin look familiar, that's because many appeared in the film Snakes on a Plane.
3. The birds that flew off, startling the horses, were actually homing pigeons whose home was only a short flight of 15 minutes away.
4. Oleander blossoms are deadly to both humans and horses if consumed.
5. Horses are very smart animals. Professionally trained, they can typically learn to ‘lay down’ on command in just a few weeks.
6. While none of the snakes actually used on set are considered deadly, the surrounding area’s natural habitat is home to the lethal Mojave rattlesnake. (Obviously, it would have posed a few problems to the guests use the local fauna.)
7. The stunt horse was also featured in Django Unchained and the new Lone Ranger movie. (And yet, he totally doesn't have a huge ego. He's surprisingly down to Earth.)
