Worm Lizard

Wormlizards are neither worm, lizard, or snake but are a unique species, the amphisbaenids. Wormlizards look like large, pink or white earthworms and are much larger than earthworms, ranging in size from 6 to 14 inches long. Florida Wormlizards spend their entire lives underground in sandy soils. They are occasionally forced above ground by heavy rains and are sometimes seen on paved surfaces. Florida Wormlizards are completely harmless.
