The Rushing Death's color scheme consists of dark forest green with a yellow underbelly, green spikes on head and body and bright pink mouth. The adult image appears to have slitted pupils and yellow irises. As a baby, the eyes are all yellow with no pupil.
This subspecies inhabits areas near water sources and displays unique hunting behavior. The Rushing Death situates itself in running water such as a stream or river, opens its wide maw, and allows the current to push Fish into its mouth.
Unlike most Whispering Deaths, which have a simple white eye, the Rushing Death has black pupils on a yellow eye.
It is possible that Rushing Deaths can better tolerate sunlight due their above-ground environment.
If one looks closely in the mouth of the Rushing Death, it appears to lack the defined rotating teeth rows of its cousin the Whispering Death.
