What you have described is neither a snake bite nor a pinch flat.

"Pinch flats (Snake Bites). This flat is identified by one or two distinct puncture marks on a tube, as if it were bitten by a snake. These are usually caused by striking something like a pothole or curb with low tire pressure. The tube becomes pinched between the tire and rim from the abrupt impact, puncturing it."
