The Aurora House Snake is uncommon and secretive so it is not often seen. It is mainly found in parts of the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Free State and Gauteng.
These snakes can grow to a length of 90 cm but are more usually less than 60 cm.
This snake is normally found on or near the ground. Their main habitat is grassland but they do occur in coastal bush and fynbos as well.
The Aurora House Snake mainly feeds on small mammals.
Females lay between 8 and 12 eggs.
