We are told to be wise as a serpent. However, we should not behave like a snake. The former is positive but the latter is negative.
In fact, if we slither like a snake on the ground, we are possessed by the evil one and in need of deliverance.
We are taught to emulate certain positive characteristics of animals, in this case the wisdom of the serpent. But we should not lose our senses/reason and behave like an animal.
