Description

This extremely rare endemic Shield-tail snake was found under ground in southern Sri Lanka. This was only the second specimen seen by one of the leading herpetologists of Sri Lanka in more than 50 years of collecting and studying snakes in that country. Notice the abrupt caudal scale, which is quite hard and is used by the snake to plug its burrow to stop potential predators from entering.
