Prefers open areas like fields, meadows, marshes, stream edges, open woodlands and hillsides at higher elevations.
Usually found on the ground in the open but also may hide under rocks and logs. In the spring, as these creatures emerge from hibernation, look around anthills or other animals' burrows. Non-venomous.
