The giant snakes raise clouds of dust and sand as though they were large tubes of meat being towed across the desert. Snakes don't move like this, for individual belly scales take it in turns to stand stationary, while the others ripple forwards clear of the ground. This can be clearly seen in the wildlife documentary Planet Earth II where racer snakes chase iguanas that kick up sand with their feet, but the snakes seem to just glide at speed since they never disturb the sandy surface.

I just saw Gods of Egypt with my 5th and 7th grade boys on 3D Imax, and we loved it! An original movie for a change, not a sequel, or prequel, or reboot, or franchise, or comic book adaptation, or spin-off film. This movie had very striking visuals, sweeping music, fun acting and action sequences, and engaging characters. It moved along very briskly, despite its slightly long run time. We had no difficulty following the plot (which is certainly no less plausible or linear than Episode VII!) or understanding who the somewhat unfamiliar Egyptian mythological characters were as some reviews suggested we might. There was a nice character arc for Horus, and even a thoughtful message from the gods to humankind at the end. Ethnically inaccurate casting choices--yeah, it would have been nice to see a more authentic cast, but these actors got the job done, and that is no reason to skip the movie if you like this sort of film, in my opinion. Give this film a chance, you may enjoy it much more than you expect!
