    Blomsterpotteslange: Brief Summary ( i18n: No )
    provided by wikipedia Norwegian

    Blomsterpotteslange er en ormeslange. Den har spredt seg med menneskelig hjelp til mange deler av verden, og er den terrestriske slangearten som har størst utbredelse.

    Den er liten, og er som regel mellom 6 og 16 cm lang. Hodet har en butt snute, og er ikke bredere enn kroppen. Øynene er reduserte, men er synlige som to svarte flekker. Ryggfargen varierer fra sølvgrå til brun og purpursvart, mens buken er grå eller brun. Halen ender i en liten pigg.

    Alle kjente eksemplarer av arten er triploide hunner, som formerer seg partenogenetisk. Den trives blant vissent løv i hager og parker, og individer som har gjemt seg i blomsterpotter og i rotklumpen på hageplanter, har bidratt til at arten har spredd seg.

    Arten ble først beskrevet fra India, og hører hjemme i Sør- og Sørøst-Asia. Utbredelsen omfatter nå India (inkludert Andamanene og Nikobarene), Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Nepal, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Kambodsja, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Filippinene, Sør-Kina, Taiwan, Ryukyuøyene, Australia, Ny-Guinea, mange øyer i Stillehavet, Den arabiske halvøy, tropisk Afrika, Seychellene, Komorene, Maskarenene, Madagaskar, Mexico, Iran, Guatemala, øyene i Karibia, USA (Florida og Hawaii), Egypt, Libya og Gran Canaria.

    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.

    Rắn giun thường (danh pháp hai phần: Ramphotyphlops braminus) là một loại bò sát thuộc họ Rắn giun (Typhlopidae). Bề ngoài giống như giun đất trưởng thành nên thường bị nhầm lẫn là giun, ngoại trừ là nó không phân đốt.

    Tuy nhìn giống giun nhưng rắn giun là một loài rắn thực sự với đầy đủ các đặc điểm cấu tạo của rắn như có xương sống, có vảy và ngóc đầu lên khi bò.

    Rắn giun xuất hiện ở Việt Nam không phải quá hiếm, nhưng do đặc điểm cơ thể thường bị nhầm với giun nên ít người chú ý.

    鉤盲蛇: Brief Summary ( Chinese )
    provided by wikipedia 中文维基百科

    鉤盲蛇(學名:Indotyphlops braminus)是蛇亞目盲蛇科下的一種無毒蛇種,主要分布在非洲亞洲,不過現在鉤盲蛇的分布已推廣至世界各地。鉤盲蛇是棲息於地洞的蛇種,由於體型細小,加上善於掘洞,因此經常被誤認為蚯蚓,唯一分別就是鉤盲蛇的身體並沒有分成明顯的段節。另外,鉤盲蛇的學名,是由印度教名詞「Brahmin(婆羅門)」拉丁化而來的。目前鉤盲蛇下尚未有任何被確認的亞種。鉤盲蛇在中國亦被稱為地鱔及鐵絲蛇。

Comprehensive Description

Distribution

    Distribution in Egypt
    provided by Bibliotheca Alexandrina LifeDesk

    Introduced. The first report of R. braminus from Egypt and northern Africa is by Baha El Din (1996b), who reported a single specimen found freshly dead on a road in the Cairo suburb of Maadi. Subsequently, the species has been reported in several localities in the vicinity of greater Cairo (Saleh 1997, Wallach 1999), the Suez Canal zone (Ibrahim 2005), Ain Sukhna, and Sharm El Sheikh.

    It is apparent that R. braminus has been quite successful in colo­nizing new territory in Egypt. There are indications that it is well established in the Nile Valley and Delta where there is extensive suit­able habitat for the species. At both Ain Sukhna and Sharm El Sheikh the species was found in tourist resorts, where gardens are planted with imported exotic vegetation, among which this tiny snake has probably been transported. The arrival of the species in Egypt seems to be recent. Examination of extensive Egyptian Typhlops and Leptotyphlops material in FMNH and NMNH col­lected between 1949 and 1960 (n= 217) did not produce a single R. braminus. The earliest material taken from Egypt appears to be a sin­gle specimen collected in 1984, but only recently identified as this species (Saleh 1997).

    Global Distribution

Current distribution includes Australia, south Asia, Arabia, sub-Saharan Africa, Madagascar, parts of the Far East and Central America, and the United States (Florida and Hawaii).
