King Cobra’s Smuggled Into The U.S. In Potato Chip Cans [PICS]

Am I making this up or wasn’t there a toy when you were little where snakes came out of a can? That is definitely a thing right? Well the real life version of that game caused one California man to be arrested and face many ….many years behind bars.

Federal agents arrested a California man for smuggling king cobra snakes through the U.S. Postal Service back in March. He stuffed them into potato chip cans (which I didn’t even realize existed). Each 2 foot long cobra was stuffed into a separate can. Only two of them survived and are now living at the San Diego zoo and the other was DOA. Here’s what’s crazy, he admitted to smuggling in 20 more of these lethal snakes into the United States but none of them survived. The suspect was charged on Tuesday and according to TMZ is facing up to 20 years in prison.

On a non life threatening note, he also smuggled in 9 turtles.
