Mikhail Bopposov, a cattle farmer from the Siberian republic of Yakutia, Russia, constructed a giant cobra with 880 pounds of frozen cow dung, Ria Novosti reported. And he did it all for the kids.

The structure, on display to celebrate the Chinese calendar's Year of the Snake, was created so the small village's children could "play around and have some fun," Bopposov said. The 52-year-old father used spare dung, known as "balbalkh," from his 17 cattle. But this wasn't his first go at dung sculpting.
