Under the category of Failing Biology, it's mentioned that the pheromones used to incite the snake attacks (or perhaps just the snakes themselves; I'm not entirely clear on the intended explanation behind the syntax used) aren't individualized. Now, I don't recall whether it was specified exactly what type of pheromones were sprayed on the lays, but couldn't they have been a selection of alarm pheromones from various breeds?

One of the most hilarious things in this film was the "snake-cam" - frequent cuts to the POV of one of the snakes, overlaid with a Green Glow to inform the audience that they were looking through reptile eyes.

We saw something similar in films like Terminator, where the POV cut to the killer robot's internal display, but this is subtly different.

Which is all by way of asking, 1)Is there already a name for this trope? And 2) If not, then shouldn't there be?

If (1) is NO and (2) is YES, then I nominate "Snake-Cam" as the trope name.

I'm watching on re-run right now. I could swear the steward put a snake in the micro wave pressed 'snake' and microwaved it to death. Is there a trope for that?
