Baskets of snakes[1] are obstacles in Donkey Kong Land. Baskets of snakes spawn Slippas indefinitely, similarly to how black drums spawn other enemies. Baskets of snakes do not spawn Slippas while stood on. Baskets of snakes are the main obstacles of Snake Charmer's Challenge, and some appear in midair above a wide pit for the Kongs to travel across. Some baskets of snakes roll down stairs and will hurt the Kongs upon touching them; if one hits a wall as it rolls, it stops and turns upright, becoming harmless. Baskets of snakes can be destroyed only from a TNT Barrel.
