Fossorial snake which is found in grasslands, costal forest and well as montane regions.
A common harmless that spends most of its time underground, beneath stones or logs as they are virtually blind. These snakes although common are not often seen except after rains where they may come to the surface when the ground becomes saturated. They feed on ant eggs, larva and termites. Found predominantly in the Eastern parts of the country where it favours coastal forest, montane grassland and moist savanna.
