Florida worm lizard Rhineura floridana)

This is an amazing posting. The Florida worm lizard is not a worm or even a lizard, it belongs to a sub-order all of its own - amphisbaenids. Within the order Squamata are snakes, lizards and amphisbaenids. They are very primative and this is the only one found in North America - the others are found in Africa and South America.

They live just under the soil's surface and we know very little about their habits.
