The ventro-lateral throat spots are distinct, the remainder of the venter is either pale or increasingly cloudy with darker pigmentation towards the rear.

Occasionally one or two dark spots are present in the pale oval. Fangs not modified for spitting, and the venom discharge orifice is large. Ventral scales number 164–196 and subcaudal scales 43–58. Total length 1500 mm (5 feet); tail length 230 mm (9 inches) (according to Smith [1943:429] larger specimens have been recorded, but they are rare).
They are found up to elevations of 1,000 m (3,300 ft) above sea level, and prefer habitats associated with water, such as paddy fields, swamps, and mangroves, but are also found in grasslands, shrublands, and forests, in agricultural land and human settlements, including cities.
