"Dungpile' works but there has to be something more...colorful. Hmmmm How about a "mingle of parasites?" Perhaps a "burrow of blood suckers?" Something more verminous than the poor misunderstood snakes. Truly I've never had a snake hand me a line of BS or go out of it's way to harm me. Now, critters like leeches, ticks, fleas ...if the shoe fits ya know.
