From the GreenTracks Amazon Herping Tour 10/06 - 10/13, 2018

from Dante Fenolio
Notes from the Amazon No221: A Speckled Worm Lizard (Amphisbaenia fuliginosa) that was observed within the city of Iquitos, Peru. These fossorial reptiles are squamates and are closely related to lizards and snakes. They have no arms or legs. In a setting like Iquitos, they are probably feeding on earthworms. The potential for herpetological finds within a city is huge for a place like Iquitos... even though the city is growing fast.
