snake = "she"


Explanation:
"She" is pronounced as "sh-eh" in the second tone (like a question).

If you want the character, send me an email and I will send jpeg.

This year is the Snake Year. Next Chinese new year after January 25 or there about is the Year of the Horse.
Horse is pronounced as "ma" in the 3rd tone, dipping down and then up slowly.
