On their first world there were sentient whales and on the new one there are giant venomous snakes. The writers showed us the whales in 2 episodes last season, so i hope we get at least one snake episode. Maybe with them getting in one of the ships that had landed.

OMG ALIEN SNAKES ON AN ALIEN PLANE!!!!!!

If you ask me, talking snakes is very controversial for several reasons.

All we need is Samuel L. Jackson to guest star in said snake episode and we're set, lol. :D

I would love a giant venomous snake epsiode!
Or even if its not the whole epsiode I would just like to see them once.
Infact the secound Mckay mentioned them I was already thinking up possible episodes for them.

Unlike the whales they don't have to be Sentiant. But instaed i imagine them as large "tremors" sized snakes. Which kinda cat like the raptors from Jarrasic Park.

There could be an epsidoe inwhich after exsploring and getting stuck on the mainland, Sheppards team realise that they are not alone in the forest! Not only that they snakes are attheir most dangerous as its almost breeding season!

Or having one or more escape into Atlantis would be cool!

Do you think TPTB chose giant snakes because of the film Michael shanks was in involving a giant snake?

that's what i'm thinking. that it was a joke poking fun at MS and Megasnake

the chances of us seeing them is, imho, very slim. it'd cost too much and would, honestly, turn atlantis into a scifi saturday crappy movie

Um, the correct quote is

"Besides the large, particularly venomous snake-like creature that inhabits the mainland, it looks to be a welcoming environment."

So, not a huge snake but large snake-like, so it might have legs. Hmm....

What will happen to the whales the next time the sun flares? Atlantis will not be there to shield them.

IIRC those flares happen every 15000 years... Perhaps by then we will have defeated all our foes in the Pegasus galaxy and have a stable platform near the sun to deflect the flare like they did in Echoes... one with 3 ZPMS to power the shields.

umm, those flares were on the original atlantis planet, not this one.

No it won't! Plus they don't have to wrry about making two shows!

If they can amke a DRAGON! aswell as the Doom monsters from "uninvited" and the whale from this very epsiode. I am sure they can make large sankeoids. I Weclome them!

Now it would be cool if they were like these snakes....

http://www.livescience.com/animals/050512_flying_snakes.html


The thing is that Rodney's calling it snake-like, so it's body may be snake-like, but it could have appendages, or wings, or who knows what else. ROdney's not a herpetologist so he'd no doubt boil it down to some generic term and ignore the rest ;)

I guess they will start swimming in circles chasing their tails going "OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG".

Seriously though, it's 15000 years untill it hits again, i'm sure they will have something there waiting for the sun with a super shield that will take 0.1% damage from the flare.

Would be cool if they were part wraith. This damn snake sucks the life outa me. It's impossible for that to happen unless the planet is full of people.

I assume Rodney was getting the snake information out of the Ancient database (seeing as the humans can't possibly have surveyed all the planets out there, and catologued the flora and fauna of each one). Seeing as this database is thousands of years out of date, I'm hoping that this new planet will throw up some surprises.

By the way, did they take Teyla's people with them, or are they still stuck on the mainland of the old planet (without a stargate)? They don't seem to have been mentioned for a while.

I think they are still on the planet the Ancients moved them to in The Return part 1

As far as I remember, they didn't return back to the mainland after the ep The Return I and II in which they had to leave. Correct me if I'm wrong.
