Blind but still has eyes! This Blindsnake looks like an earthworm until you take a closer look and can see the scales.  Also possible to see it sticking out it's tiny tongue but too challenging to get the tongue shot.  They may be blind, but still has eyes, as can be seen in the picture, the tiny black dot.

"Indotyphlops braminus" is a nonvenomous blind snake species found mostly in Africa and Asia, but has been introduced in many other parts of the world. They are completely fossorial animals, with habits and appearance similar to earthworms, for which they are often mistaken, although close examination reveals tiny scales rather than the annular segments characteristic of true earthworms.
