I think the snake/dragon symbolizes DNA and the gods.

I think the snake/dragon symbolizes DNA and the gods. What are your reasons to believe that?

Um, wasn't Grendel a big hairy green man??? I thought he was more of an ogre than a dragon... Big hairy and green...I thought so also. My Grandfather would tell me the stories of Beowolf and Grendel was always a troll. I think Tolkien was the only one to say he was from a dragons line? I might be wrong though.

I may be mistaken, but I believe that Grendel's mother was a dragon, not Grendel himself.

I may be mistaken, but I believe that Grendel's mother was a dragon, not Grendel himself. Slave, according to my Grandfathers stories thats right. He was born of man and dragon, creating a troll....So I have been told.
