The appearance of 巳(si) seems like a snake with curved long body whose mouth(口 kou)is very special: The cruel animal is so greedy that it can open the mouth as large as possible to swallow down the hunted-enemy! In Chinese we have such a proverb:“Men seldom feel satisfaction with  themselves just as a snake is eager to swallow an elephant into the stomach!”  (人无足,蛇吞象!)

To foreign reader friends: Do you feel funny when you draw a square as mouth plus a curved stroke for a snake?
