Sea serpents are a race of magical serpents that live primarily in the ocean, however, they are also capable of coming up on land, if the situation demands.
Sea serpents look similar to their mundane snake cousins, however, there are several differences between them. For one thing, sea serpents are much bigger than their mundane cousins, large enough that they are able to wrap around a full-sized cruise ship 1.5 times. Also, they have fish-like dorsal fins along the length of their bodies, about six per individual. Another thing is that a sea serpent has a fish-like tail fin, however, like merfolk, their tail fins are positioned horizontally, rather like whales and dolphins. They swim in vertical undulations, giving them their trademark "humps" when they swin near the surface. Other than those differences, they basically look like mundane snakes.
Sea serpents are solitary creatures, however, they will get together during mating season, when large groups of them will curl up in large balls and just mate. They usually live in underwater caves, but regularly leave them to hunt. They are carnivorous by nature, and will eat any meat they can find/catch. Eggs are usually laid in clutches of six or seven, and the hatchlings are usually left alone to fend for themselves
