The Snake is one of the 12 Animal signs of the Chinese Zodiac. In the background is the Chinese character for the Snake.

Those born in the Year of the Snake are said to be rather philosophical, critical thinkers with discerning taste and great personal confidence. They also have a strong sense of honor and organization.
If you were born in 2013, 2001, 1989, 1977, 1965, 1953, 1941, or 1929 you are probably a Snake, but double-check the exact dates if your birthday is in mid-January to mid-February because the Lunar New Year is on a different date each year. Wikipedia’s Chinese Zodiac page is a good starting point for more information about all of the signs and their meanings.
