They are EXACTLY the same size as the "Life-like snakes". The only real difference is the silly colors. Fine for a children's party, but expect to find them in with the rest of the trash. Kinda worthless. Not all that special. You got an odd variety of what you see in the picture. The only saving grace is that they're so inexpensive. If you thought about getting the life-like snakes, you may prefer to go with these instead.
