    It looks like a cobra braid with the core missing.

    ah, sorry folks.

    Its the black and red scorpion, when I made the link it was the only pic on the screen.

    I can see its a cobra knot, but how is it all pot together, how do you get the tail to curl up?

    I would think its curled using a piece of wire. I still need to make one of those.

    If the weave is tight enough, you should be able to shape it without wire. I just tested it with a bracelet I have here. Really cool though. I am going to have to try this one.

    Yeah but the wire will add a touch of realism since the tail will now have an action pose.

    Agreed. I tie mine tight enough they would curl like that too. But I'd add a little mechanics wire in the core for better shape.
