Artist's Description

Now I’m not 100% on the ID as these blind snakes all look alike. Blind Snakes, Ramphotyphlops spp., are small, non-venomous snakes and are rarely encountered. They are nocturnal and usually burrow through the soil, although they may be seen moving on the surface on warm humid nights. They are found in loamy soils, under rocks, in or under rotting logs or in ant or termite nests. All species lay eggs and feed primarily on ants and/or termites. They are not really blind (though their eyesight is poor) but have hard scales covering their eyes to protect them from ants and subterranean environment!
