Striking color. That would make a nice belt. If you see one, let me know.

Its a pickled specimen. A live one is breathtaking. Not called a Rainbow Snake for nothing.

I belive they feed mainly on aquatic salamenders like Amphiuma, missnamed “Congo” Eels - very ugly and very nasty amphibians with a wicked bite.

Farancia is a semi-aquatic fossial species, very secretive, so it very well might still be around South Florida - hopefully.
