This myth, does not say.

It only says that the serpent was more crafty then any beast in the field (Literal Serpent and not a representation of Lucifer) . . . This also means it references the serpent as a particular species of animal . . . So maybe not that particular serpent but all serpents were crafty . . . And could . . . Speak?

No, and God never gave the animals a mind so that they could carry on an intelligent conversation with humans. The snake was used by Satan the same way that a skilled person can make it seem that his voice is coming from a nearby doll or dummy. And since he is invisible Eve as well as some today think that snakes were able to talk. Genesis 3:1-6

Actually I was referring to Cookie's expanded storyline that includes God giving animals the ability to "Talk" with humans in Genesis.

God did not give animals the ability to speak .it was Satan that manipulated the serpent. The punishment that God gave symbolized Satan's debased condition. 2 Peter 2:4

As Adam observed all the wild beasts of the field, there on the ground or on a tree a long scaly animal glided along, without limbs. Adam called it na‧hhash′, which to us means “serpent” or “snake.”
