Slithering across the courtyard with the air of a nascent siren in heat, eyes smoky, grey-black leather suit ...
When in the striking position, the Mamba flattens its neck, hisses very loudly and displays its inky black mouth and deadly fangs. It can rear up around one-third of its body from the ground which allows it to reach heights of approximately four feet. When warding off a threat, the black mamba usually delivers multiple strikes, injecting its potent neuro- and cardiotoxin with each strike, often attacking the body or head, unlike most other snakes.
They manage to drag the Mamba into the open square and give her a thrashing. She is kicked, stamped, slapped, jabbed with a pole, spitted upon. In short, the beating is cruel and violent. Imagine being thrashed in the open with half of the town people staring at you, mouths open, not helping.
It took me about ten months to work out the reason why I was attacked and ganged up against.
Roughly, it goes like this.
Snakes have their unique way of looking at the world (alien detection system, plus being deaf to gossip and reputations) like other animal types, and they have ideas that suggest change which other animal types do not like at all and they can be quite upset by the Snake. The Snake itself is thoroughly confused and under distress cannot help but respond in their natural alien manner. (I am only 20% Snake, when extroverted.)
The following personalities are particularly persecutory:
When Wolves find that their position or beliefs were not comprehended or accepted, they are surprised, puzzled, and sometimes hurt, and likely to explode in a fit of anger. Snake comprehend them, but never understand them, but the Wolves do not know much of the time. (Last night when I was in Snake mode, I was accused of winding people up. These were Wolves: they always have an agenda!)
Dogs are trustees of the institutions and do not like their cherished beliefs questioned by the Snake. Dogs dislike the Dragon even more.
Horses, especially the variants Camels and Unicorns, are extremely dangerous to Snakes because they want to control other types and the Snakes have no natural comprehension of this want. Horses may think the Snake wants to be Champion the Wonder Horse and make a premeditated attack.
Tigers are ruthless, especially the Black Panther variant, and will stop at nothing if the Snake or another animal type is in their way.
Bulls ride to and fro upon Tigers which they dare not dismount. Bulls simply crush anybody who they decide are enemies and that means Snakes.
The Ferret is dangerous to the Snake because he might find out a secret. Weasels are more problematical because they will invent false stories. The Mongoose variant is probably fatal.
Rats and Mice can contaminate everything with their droppings and could be a thorough nuisance. The Snake is not immune, but the greatest danger is that somebody believes the lies the rodents tell.
The Bear is no friend of the Snake and they just don't get on. The Cat is no friend of the Snake, but isn't really an enemy either, just not all that a good friend to anyone.
The Hawk can take a Snake quite easily and an Eagle might even do so.
Other Snakes are dangerous possibly fatal by constriction or venom. Depends on variants. Possibly friends.
The only animal types (of the same sex) that seem a safe bet are Butterflies and even Dragons could be problematical for non pure breeds. Not that I have actually met any, so I don't know. I think I spotted one though. They are easy to miss. Skylarks are good friends, but there are not many around. Skylarks are really complex people and may defy Eagle logic.

The Snake type is at a strong disadvantage unless very clever in the western society. It can be a state of constant terror. The leaders of organisations are often Bulls, the Police Force is made up of Dogs and Bears and the Horsemen are around everywhere.
Andy (Only a Snake when in a good mood, and that hasn't happened much recently.)Snake transformed into a Dragon (physically damaged version of an Eagle)I can (before the injury) morph-shift through at least five animal types, so when fit I only operate 20% in Snake mode so I can avoid this special grief some of the time.
Because of vested interests and enemies, many of the Snakes have to stay inside for risk of being beaten up, but still crap is put through their letter box. These are white ordinary British citizens. Typical persecutors are the Christian church, Conservative party right wing extremists, extreme political parties of any persuasion, land owners, Banks, salesmen of all kinds, petrolheads and anti-socialists (who have down on Snakes).Some of these groups have the capacity to organise professional hits if a Snake threatens their vested interests: not so much a conspiracy, more like-minded people.
Snakes may have difficulty getting work, except in the fringe theatre. Schizoid/Retiring according to Millon.
