Cling Cobras[1], also referred to as Wiggles[2][page number needed], are cobra-like enemies that appear in Donkey Kong Country Returns and its Nintendo 3DS remake, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. They only appear in the level Clingy Swingy.

Cling Cobra's name is derived from king cobra, a type of real world venomous snake. Cling Cobras have a yellow body and an orange stripe spanning across their back. They have red eyes and a set of sharp teeth that match the yellow color of their body.

As their name suggests, Cling Cobras' main characteristic is to cling on to a grass patch, which they repeatedly move across. If a Cling Cobra slithers into Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong, they lose a heart point. This sometimes also causes the Kongs to lose their balance and fall off the patch of grass. The Kongs can defeat a Cling Cobra by jumping on it.
