maybe the serpent was a physical incarnation of Satan just to serve the purpose of tricking eve. In some Hindu scripts, they say that Satan will incarnate on earth in different forms. I know Hinduism & Christianity are somewhat different, but it makes sense to me.

Then the LORD God said to the serpent: "Because you have done this, you shall be banned from all the animals and from all the wild creatures; On your belly shall you crawl, and dirt shall you eat all the days of your life. 15 3 I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; He will strike at your head, while you strike at his heel."
Some Christians believe that this the first prophecy of Christ. You notice the word He, not they will strike at your head. Which is a singular not a plural. Christ struck at Satan's head in the desert, and on the Cross by dying and raising so we could be redeemed. here are verses that you could cross reference. Wis 2, 24; Jn 8, 44; Rv 12, 9; 20,2. I would suggest you read more then just the verses. Read the whole chapter. The verses are just a starting point.

In Judaism, they do not believe the serpent was Satan. I do not know where Christians get that idea.
