The Snake is extremely intelligent and wily, as is the Rooster. They are all part of the same group in the Chinese zodiac and are definitely among the strongest in the Chinese clan. The Rooster clashes with the Hare, as the Hare is very sensitive and emotional. The two have polar opposite characteristics and it's difficult for them to ever see eye to eye with one another.
