They are found in forests and fields, and around streams.
They do not fear humans but are very secretive.
They are rarely seen during the day, but can cross roads at night.
They are very colourful, with a ‘v’ pattern on the neck.
They eat small rodents. They are harmless, non-venomous snakes, but are often mistaken for a rattlesnake, as it can vibrate its tail, much like a rattlesnake.
