Project Noah Fun Fact: Ichthyophis is a genus of caecilians found in Southeast Asia, the southern Philippines, and the western Indo-Australian Archipelago. Caecilians (New Latin, blind ones) are a group of limbless, serpentine amphibians. They mostly live hidden in the ground, making them the least familiar order of amphibians. ~Wikipedia
