This colorful water serpent is completely nocturnal and rarely seen. They are found in or among floating vegetation in freshwater streams and sometimes in loose sand along the banks of waterways and swamps, where they hunt eels.
Rainbow snakes are found in the coastal plain of the southern United States, from southern Virginia to eastern Louisiana; they’re no longer found in Florida.
They do not bite when handled.
