how does this thing survive?! It's just a living sausage!
what he said^
I agree - a blind snake, for starters
At first I thought it was a finger! Then bread. what an interesting animal.
Yes, alive and kicking! (well sort of kicking :-)) Couldn't find in any book yet.
yep i agree with s fraizer definatly looks like one of those!
I think this is a blind snake of the Family Typhlopidae. I have not found it yet but shows some similarities to Rhinotyphlops sp., Megatyphlops sp. or Afrotyphlops sp. This website has some relevant drawings http://www.ethiopia-herpetology.com/lept....
Could also be a species of legglass lizard in the Aprasia family looking at the scales!
it looks a bit dry though was it still alive?
Looks like a caecilian its a type of amphibian, ill see if i can get an ID
?!? The first photo looks like French Bread. The rest look like a dead snake but no eyes........what's going on here please???
