Theother day my daughter called me as I was heading
home from work to inform me that a strangle looking black worm was on the
kitchen floor. Had no idea why this would be, but when I saw the creature I was
pretty sure that it was a tiny reptile called aBrahminy Blind Snake.
Brahminy Blind Snake
Blind Snake is non-native and has spread widely across the tropical and
sub-tropical regions of the planet. It was introduced here from its home
in Asia. It is harmless and non-threatening
to our environment. It has become common in South Florida and established in sod nurseries. It does
not require a mate to reproduce, lives mostly underground and basically dines
on termites and ant larvae
the little guy out we elected to return it to the yard.
