As usual, refer to the "mutations and appearance" entry.
Except that most creatures with the tauric snake form acquire a climb speed, or swim speed or both and have their base speed lowered.
A tauric snake form would reduce base speed by ten and give you a climb speed, swim speed or both at the same rate.
What you have gives a faster land speed and at the start does the opposite of anything relating to a tauric snake form.
