Hey Guys a quick update. The Skyrim official game guide posts that the pillar puzzle in Ansilvund is Snake Hawk Whale Snake and it should be:
HAWK SNAKE WHALE SNAKE (left to right when facing head on), this is for option 7 on page 568 of the Official Skyrim Guide. Hope this helps out.
another great tip from the video gamers at rukse yes the play video games too.
