It is strange and repulsive.

“Amongst the deities and Asuras and celestial Rishis, O amiable lady, the Nagas are endued with great energy. Possessed of great speed, they are endued again with excellent fragrance.

I tell thee, O lady, that we are incapable of being seen by human beings.”
-Mahābhārata, Santi Parva, Mokshadharma Parva, section CCCLX. ca. 500 B.C.

The nagas are a race of cruel snakemen who dwell in the Snake Pit, a side branch of the Lair. They move slowly and wear little armour, but carry heavy weapons, spit poison at you, and can constrict you with their muscular tails.
