BAHAMIAN PINK BLIND SNAKE

Typhlops biminiensis

The Pink Blind Snakes are more common on Bimini than the Brown Blind Snake, and are often mistaken for earth-worms. They can commonly be found hiding under rocks and logs near ant nests, and around termite mounds, where they can easily feed on the tiny insects inside but prefer dry sandy habitats. Blind snakes are the most primitive group of snakes. Their eyes are very small, and surrounded by rigid scales that are slightly darker than the rest of the body.
