An interesting thought I had after reading Genesis 3.
Satan was not a snake; though some picture-Bibles may illustrate so.

Genesis 3:14 reads "And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life."
Notice how He says in the curse that Satan will go on his belly through the dust? Satan had to have been a dragon, since he couldn't have already been crawling through the dust..
Looking in my dictionary, it defines "serpent" as "a creature that movies in a winding motion, has scales, etc.." Maybe it would have been better to replace serpent with dragon.
