Man-serpents are huge, snake-like creatures with human heads. Their "hair" is a mass of tiny snakes, and their face often emits an unearthly golden glow. They are cold-blooded with glittering black scales and grow to an adult length of 20 to 40 feet. Wise and patient, these creatures can stay still for hours but move swiftly when alarmed. They favor resting in a semi-aware state that conserves their energy and makes them very hard to surprise.
Man-serpents are quite intelligent and prefer to use their charm gaze and magical abilities from a distance, although they will fight ferociously if angered into physical combat.
Man-serpents are carnivorous and swallow their prey whole. They can go for weeks or months without feeding, however, and can also sustain themselves magically, although they prefer to eat humans and elves, which they are usually fed by villainous yuan-ti and evil snake-worshipping priests.

From Robert E. Howard's The God in the Bowl.
