Small Juvenile Snake? Legless Lizard?

Small worm like creature
Head from above

This was a small snake/worm like creature (moved like a snake) I found on the floor this morning. The animal was about 8 cm long, and 0.2 cm wide. There were no obvious eyes or mouth. Closer inspection under a microscope revealed what appeared to be two eye like structures on the head (see 'Head from above' photo). I have uploaded a video of it moving and this can be at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFd83vLVdrE

Hi Masked Marvel,

Thanks for the ID.

I have now used the information you have provided and searched the web. From the photos I have seen, and the material I have read, I am convinced you are right.
