Description

Undergraduate student from Los Angeles with a class had caught and brought this back to the lodge. As I recall, he had found it not far from the lodge, but it could have been some ways off as the group was doing quite a bit of collecting.

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.

No range data available.
