- A giant snake
During the Chunin Exam story arc, Naruto and his comrades take the Chunin Exam; a series of trials designed to test whether they are worthy of becoming Chunin, the next highest-ranked level of ninjas. One of the trials puts them in a forest in which there are many deadly creatures.
While performing the forest trial, Naruto is separated from his group and comes across a giant snake. The snake attacks Naruto, wraps him up in its coils and then swallows him whole. Inside the snake, Naruto faces the reality that he will be digested if he does not escape. He then gets the idea to use his Shadow Clone jutsu to multiply himself. The resulting mass of the clones causes the snake to burst open, freeing Naruto.
