Long and legless but not a snake!!

The place was not wet as it is supposed to be in this time of the year. We started exploring the forest floor. The leaves were almost dry with very little moisture. I started to look under the rocks and logs, only to find lots of termites and ants. One of the log was free of ants and termites, i knew there would be something but never thought i would see a caecilian. It was very calm and not moving. I had never seen a caecilian so calm. After documenting, left him under the same log under which he was found.
Most of the caecilians that i have come across is during night and in streams. Earlier in july i came across 2 caecilian larvae in Agumbe in morning, in a small rain fed stream. They were very fast and were moving upstream. And a few adults in Amboli at night in streams. This was my first caecilian in this part of coorg!! Better version here

Description from Wikipedia

The caecilians are an order (Gymnophiona) of amphibians that superficially resemble earthworms or snakes. They mostly live hidden in the ground, making them the least familiar order of amphibians. All extant caecilians and their closest fossil relatives are grouped as the clade Apoda. They are mostly distributed in the tropics of South and Central America, Africa, and South Asia. The diets of caecilians are not well known.
