Similarly one may ask, do caecilians bite?
A caecilian biting off more than it can chew. Caecilians are poorly-known legless amphibians that live in wet forests (some species are aquatic). They are seldom encountered, and scientists do not even know what many of the species eat. This particular Giant Earthworm is much too big for this little caecilian.
Similarly, what are caecilians most closely related to? Caecilians may look like snakes or worms, but they are neither. They're amphibians, which means the curious creatures' closest relatives are frogs and salamanders.
Furthermore, do caecilians have limbs?
Caecilians (pronounced seh-SILL-yens) are tropical amphibians that look like large worms or slick snakes. They have no arms or legs, and sometimes it's hard to tell which end is the head and which is the tail! Most caecilians are burrowers, living in a network of tunnels underground.
What are some examples of caecilians?
Caeciliidae Ichthyophis Scolecomorphidae Rhinatrema
