I like the blue one because you actually see the snake. The first icon could be for anything, it doesn't really show anything distinct.

Maybe if you had the snake's head in the black one rather than just the body, I think I'd like the black icon more because it's more dynamic than just the simple looping shape in the blue icon.

Agreed.

I would like to see a black version of the 2nd icon though.

Could you do a mockup of the black icon with the snake's head at one of the ends? Like have the upper body curve in with the head there or something similar? I think that would look the best.

I like the black color, but idk, looking at the icon, it looks like a loading symbol or something. I prefer the more curvy dynamic style of the other icons with the head showing. It's more snake like

Bronxsta, I have the same impressions regarding "loading symbol". That's why I designed (inspired by Primoz and you) option 4:
