Rufous-beaked snake is a medium to large non-venomous snake most often found in mopane and broad-leafed woodland in Botswana. They hunt primarily by entering burrows and disused termitaria where they feed on a wide range of vertibrates including other snakes. Juveniles frequently take invertibrates. They are pale brownish on the back with an almost hooked appearance to the pointed head. Between the eye and nostril is a dark blackish band.
