In Animal Farm, how do Napoleon and Snowball treat other animals?
I'd like to hear the similarities/differences please :)

Although they are both strong leaders, Napoleon and Snowball have very different ideas about the revolution. While Snowball believes in the ideals of the revolution, Napoleon sees it as an opportunity to garner power for himself. Snowball has the brains, but Napoleon has the brawn.
After the revolution, Snowball tries to get the animals to work together, get educated, and be involved in government. Napoleon, on the other hand, wants the farm to be governed by an elite group of pigs rather than committees of animals.
Snowball is a strong orator, but Napoleon is a master manipulator. Ultimately, Napoleon’s power-grabbing is successful and he is able to not only run Snowball off the farm but continue to use him as a scapegoat after he leaves.
