I recently went to a park with a huge lake in it, that lake had a mini Ecosystem in it, two types of ducks, a bunch of geese and large fish.She absolutely LOVED it. She used to watch over a large river when alive from what she has shown me and told me, so being near such a large body of water was very enjoyable for her.
Naga are River Spirits in Japan she might have lived in that area while alive.... 2hp

Naga's aren't river spirits in Japan? They come from India typically. They are found in Buddhism and Jainism and Thailand as well. Sometimes naga are associated with Chinese dragons. Where are you getting your sources? @summerstarz maybe you are thinking of Mizuchi? I mean I'm not saying there aren't naga and nagi in Japan but they really aren't typical in that region. At least not by the name "naga' they are generally called dragons. For example the naga king Vasuki is one of the 8 great dragon kings in Chinese and Japanese mythology. They for sure watch over Bodies of water though....

CH describes Naga as abnormally large snakes while some other sellers describe them as being half human, half snakes (along with the ability to shift into full snake form). Why the difference in description?
I don't remember which sellers now because I read this a year a go.

Here's a description from Lisa's MMT:

The naga are human like serpentine spirits that inhabit lakes, streams, and rivers in southeast asia. These beings are unique and powerful. 
Some legends say that they are more human like with many snake heads, some say they are more like a large serpent that can take human form. There are also variations of legs, no legs, etc. Basically a naga can appear like any and all of these forms. They can shift form between human and serpent and any combination thereof. So, all the legends are essentially correct.

And I think Jamie Blujay also refers to Nagas as being part human, part snake or shape shifters. Did anyone who have ordered from CH have seen their Nagas as half humans? Or they all are snakes?

Google lol and my Naga shows as both a large snake and a woman with her lower half as serpentine.

Snake for me, a bit smaller than the basilisk : )

The myth might be related to another race, the vif, which is snake shifter.

I have seen mine both as a serpent and as a stunning woman, but never half and half. I get the impression that it just was not/is not efficient to assume that form most of the time.

"Swim through water? Better as snake. Walk among men? Better as woman. Scare man from sacred land? Better snake. Negotiate with man? Better woman. Inbetween form is not so efficient."

Can they; yes. Do they/will they most of the time? Probably not.
