English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

10.26 - 10.29 Of trees I am Asvattha which is worthy of worship. Of celestial seers I am Narada. Kamadhuk is the divine cow. I am Kandarpa, the cause of progeny. Sarpas are single-headed snakes while Nagas are many-headed snakes. Aatic creatures are known as Yadamsi. Of them I am Varuna. Of subdures, I am Yama, the son of the sun-god.

Commentary - Chakravarthi Ji

Among horses, I am Ucchaihsrava who arose from the churning of the nectar ocean (amrtodbhavam).

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Of powerful horses and mighty elephants, Lord Krishnas vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence is the horse Uccaihsrava and the elephant Airavata, who both were manifested by amrtodbhavam which was the churning of the ocean of milk into celestial nectar by the demigods and demons as revealed in the Puranas. And know that Lord Krishnas vibhuti manifests amongst humans as the ruler of men being naradhipam the royal king.
