Animal Planet Wild Eyes King Cobra Snake Review and Giveaway!

Hello neighbors!

What a great day out here At the Fence! Just finished a walk around the neighborhood with my husband and I am ready to blog. Today I have another really neat item from Animal Planet. It is a Wild Eyes 40 inch Animotion King Cobra in Green. My children love it. When you touch it's head, or it is disturbed the head starts moving, the eyes start flashing and it hisses. The children were running around and trying to scare each other. My 10 year old was wearing it around her neck, with the snakes head right above hers, and letting it hiss at people.


The snake is poseable and is 40 inches long. The Wild Eyes runs on 3 AA batteries, which are included. The motions are very realistic, as he moves his head and hisses. You can purchase the Cobra for $24.99.

Animal Planet is obviously most known for their television program, but they also have DVD's, games and of course toys. My children love the animals the most. My 10 year old (girl) loves both the Cobra and Black Widow Spider we received from Animal Planet. Now, my 13 year old loves the dinosaurs. She has quite a collection of dinosaurs right now. You can find a lot of information on their website regarding different animals. Yes, they believe in evolution and we believe in creation, but onece you get past the evolution, much of the information is very informative.

For a gift basket you would need to take the snake out of the packaging, and then you could wrap him around whatever other items you put in there. I used a water bottle with a flashlight, a pocket knife from the Texas Rangers Museum. Looks sort of nice, I think.





The winner will receive their own Animal Planet Wild Eyes King Cobra.

Sorry everyone, I just added the extra entries. We are packing for a trip to Chicago and I think my brain is on auto-pilot.

First, thanks for reviewing this and for the video. It's something we've been thinking about purchasing for our son for Christmas.


We watched a few of the Animal Planet's "America's Cutest Dog 2010" Our Favorite video was "Star Wars Pooches".

My daughter loves snakes. I don't mind them in a tank, but finding them slithering around in the great outdoors isn't quite so appealing to me

I don't mind snakes in the wild, as long as they don't bother me. I did step barefoot on a water moccasin when I was younger, and thankfully, nothing happened.

I watched Pitbulls & Paroles. I had caught it one weekend when it was on TV and it is quite good. I have a small cat rescue- nothing like she does but can relate to some of the day to day things
