This beautiful snake is a burrowing, nocturnal species that is often found sheltering beneath rocks and logs. When threatened, it  raises loops of the body vertically off the ground - which is why it is often called the hoop snake. 

The significance of this display is unknown, but probably serves to confuse predators.  It may also help to protect the snake's head which remains on the ground.
