Habitat and Ecology

Habitat and Ecology
Little is known about this species. Seven out of twelve females collected by Bergman (1960) were gravid and the clutch size ranged from 6-16. The morphology of this species suggests that it is a burrowing snake (Murphy 2007).

Very little is known about the habitats used by this species. Based on its morphology, this species is unlikely to be aquatic and more likely to be a burrower in muddy habitats (J. Murphy pers. comm. 2009). It most likely lives near freshwater sources and near river banks or floodplains.
