Embed Thompson's caecilian, Tatama National Park, Colombia

Thompson's caecilian, Tatama National Park, Colombia A unusual find at night on the forest floor of Tatama National Park, Colombia. This is endemic to Colombia and the largest known caecilian in the world, at around 1.5m in length. This one definitely was around that size. 
They spent most of their lives below the soil yet occasionally come out and crawl around in snake-like movements, despite being fully blind.

They are very fast and impossibly strong. Our guide could not hold on to it even with two hands. They even have reinforced skulls to help digg into hard soil.
