Worm Lizards of the United States
Amphisbaenids resemble earthworms in appearance. Body scales are fused into rings which encircle the body. Specialized for burrowing, family members lack external ear opening, have eyes buried under the skin, and with theexception of one genus, Bipes, which has short front legs, they are limbless.
Amphisbaenids live underground much of their lives feeding on insects and worms. Their breeding boilogy is poorly known and most seem to be egg layers.
There is only one specie of Worm Lizard in the U.S.
Found in Northern and Central Florida.
