    Indotyphlops braminus: Brief Summary
    provided by wikipedia

    Indotyphlops braminus, commonly known as the brahminy blind snake and , is a nonvenomous blind snake species found mostly in Africa and Asia, but has been introduced in many other parts of the world. They are completely fossorial (i.e., burrowing) animals, with habits and appearance similar to earthworms, for which they are often mistaken, although close examination reveals tiny scales rather than the annular segments characteristic of true earthworms. The specific name is a Latinized form of the word Brahmin, which is a varna among Hindus. No subspecies are currently recognized.
