Relatively small the Malaysian Striped Coral Snake is a somewhat common but rather elusive snake. As with many species of coral snake the Striped Coral spends most of its time foraging in leaf litter and restricting its movements to night time. There is wide variability in color ranging from light brown to highly contrasting black and reds. Virtually all specimens will exhibit black and white block patterns on the ventral scales and a bright reddish orange underside of the tail. The head is small in indistinct from the neck.
