Blind Pink Snake Species Rediscovered After 100 Years.

Scientists re-discovered the blind snake of Madagaskar (Xenotyphlops mocquardi) after the species was last seen more than 100 years ago. The snake is approximately 10 inches long, as thick as a pencil, and looks like a long skinny pink worm!

“They’re really rare because they’re subterranean,” said blind-snake expert Van Wallach of Harvard University who described the new specimen. “You can’t just go out anytime you want and collect these things. You can dig forever and never find them.”
