About feeding habits... I have caught and studied several Sharp-Tailed Snakes, and this is what the generalized feeding habits/behaviors were. They generally eat small slugs that range in .5 inches to 1.5 inches, also on a slightly more rare occasion they will eat worms. When they try to "hunt" they first locate a animal, once that is done they hunch back and brace the sharp part of there tail into the ground. They then lunge with there tail anchoring them, and grab there victim. One of the interesting things I found about them, is they would "chew" there selected targets for up to 20 seconds before swallowing.
