Snow Serpents are the Arctic Specialist branch of the Eels (COBRA Frogmen). They must undergo the same rigorous training program as the Eels with the addition of a six month cold weather course somewhere above the Arctic Circle. Other aspects of their training include airborne operations (under arctic conditions), anti-tank procedures and the use of snow-shoes, skis and kayaks.

"If the Eels are the elite of COBRA's naval branch, then the Snow Serpents are the best of the best. How else could you characterize an individual who would parachute onto an ice floe in sub zero temperatures and then be prepared to march 50 miles with full field pack, assault rifle and anti-tank weapon?"



My Personal Notes: Snow Serpents were cool bad guys I found cool.  What is different with him, is while I didn't have him as a kid, I found him a few years later being sold in more or less mint condition with a full card along with the Joe Alpine and the Cobra Eel.  They were cheap and I couldn't pass them up.  I now regard them as the best in my collection, because I think that the guy I bought them from just displayed them a little, and they were really never handled or played with.
