The snake can reach lengths of up to 36 inches.
With it's triangular head the snakes colors tend to be usually of ground colors. It may teach itself to live above the leaf litter which would keep it a natural grey color, otherwise it slithers between leaves creating its brown triangular scales that represent its camouflage of the forest floor.
It prefers coastal forests, bamboo thickets, unused and overgrown farmland, orchards, plantations as well as forests near plantations.
Females guard their clutches of eggs.
