    Amongst all the known therianthrope types, the werewolf, the  wererat and the werebat are considered among the oldest of types.  But  even these do not compare to the age of weresnake therianthropes.  While  not super rare, these therianthropes are the most ancient of  werecreatures.  They are often confused with Nagas and Necarisus in  their hybrid forms.

    Those with therianthropy tend to develop a  number of characteristics.  Most develop reptilian like skin along their  shoulders, arms and down their back.  These are often a deep green to a  mauve.  The pupil of their eyes become diamond shape and their ears  seem smaller as well.

      In their hybrid shape they have a humanoid  core body of their species type, their arms and legs become thin and  lanky.  Their hands and feet end in sharp claws.  Their neck stretches  becoming serpentine and their heads change into a serpent and growing a  serpentine tail.  They also gain a serpents forked tongue with which  they gain additional supernatural senses.

       In their animal shape they become a gigantic sized serpent.
