The snake and the mirror are alike in terms of admiring their ownselves elaborate the statement

Dear student,
Perhaps, you mean: 'the snake and the doctor'.

The story revolves around the narrator and the snake. The man was sitting in front of the mirror admiring himself when a snake suddenly coiled itself around his arm and starting staring at him. The man was terrified as the snake was only a few inches from his face and if it bit him, he would have died. However, the snake had a chance to look in the mirror and was smitten by its own beauty. The snake was so enchanted by looking at itself in the mirror  that it did not realize when it uncoiled itself from the man's arm giving him a chance to run away. The author has made a profound comment here on the excessively ridiculous vanity shared by the narrator and the snake.
