Greetings and love from a professional dabbler, dandified layabout. I am... a transient heart, chameleon soul and a deathless wonder.
I am an idea, I change as frequently as the direction of the wind but I shall never expire. I am fickle;useless, a cad and a bounder, but still loveable.
And I have no plans to ever change.

Ringed Caecilian - Siphonops annulatus

This creature is not a worm or a snake (though it seems), but an amphibian, and more precisely a caecilian scientifically named Siphonops annulatus (Gymnophiona - Caeciliidae), a species widely distributed through tropical South America.

Siphonops annulatus measures 286-450 mm in total length. Its eyes are small, vestigial but externally visible (the light blue stain in the top photo). A bit down and left of the eye is a tiny tentacle (whitish colored). This species has a cylindrical body with annular grooves that completely encircle the body.

The Ringed Caecilian exhibits an unusual form of parental care known as maternal dermatophagy, where the offspring consume maternal skin for nourishment. Attending mothers have specialized skin, enriched in lipids. Offspring have specialized dentition.
