It was the race organized to cross a great river by the Jade Emperor in the days of yore for the animals of the forest that lead to 12 different animals gaining a position in the Chinese Zodiac calendar. The snake came in sixth. It would have been in seventh position, if it was not for its shrewd and intelligent ways. As the snake was not that good a swimmer he hitched a hidden ride on the horse’s hoof while the horse was crossing the river. Once they were near the finish line, the snake jumped off the hoof startled the horse and slid onto the finishing line to gain its sixth position.
The 12 zodiac animals also represent the cycle of hours in the day with each animal given a two-hour time period. The time of the snake is between 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. This is also the time the sun starts to warm up the earth and the snakes being cold-blooded come out of their holes and to bask in the sun.
