Please explain to me the garden of Eden scene...
If the serpent was cursed, what form was he before the curse? I am always seeing illustrations of snakes but if you read it, it says he is cursed to crawl on his belly.

Yes, I would assume that he had legs or wings of some kind. Some snakes have remnants of legs called spurs. Others have remnants of legs internally.

Greetings!

In Gen 3.1, the serpent is described as a "beast of the field."  In Gen 3.14, it says that he was cursed above all cattle and above every beast of the field.  So, to my way of thinking, the serpent was like a cow, donkey, horse, water buffalo, etc.  I was raised in OK.  However, i have also noticed during this part of the scripture, the word cattle is distinguished from beast - Gen 1.24, 25; 2.20.  

I searched on Blue Letter Bible for "beast of the field." But, no direct answers.  Still searching for this one.  Please share whatever you find.
