I redesigned the snake to print with pins and sockets like the Micro Geared Heart.
Print the parts and assemble.
I've uploaded a printing plate so you can print it in two colors then alternate the colors. Then just print one color of each end piece and assemble.
I finally got done printing my own copy and it came out pretty well. If you are having problems inserting the pins make sure to use a pair of pliers to get them into the first block. I've printed my pins with 1 shell and 5% infill that seems to make them a little easier to insert.
I printed my pins with 100% infill and 0 shells that tends to make them more solid and they fit tighter in the blocks.
I printed the blocks with 1 shell 15% infill.
If you are having trouble inserting the pins try using some pliers.
