I've always argued with friends that peiste mobs resemble snakes, and all of them have disagreed with me saying that they are very clearly lizards (which they are, at least in terms of in-game family, but whatever). The fact that SE is using peistes to represent the Year of the Snake ought to garner me some significant points toward my argument >_>
No, they're clearly lizards (protip: feet). I think the only reason SE is using Peistes is because they dont have snakes. I'd go for Lamia, but those are clearly undead.
