Kerala Caecilians: Uraeotyphylidae - Behavior And Reproduction

larvae species adults

Kerala caecilians dig burrows. Other than that, scientists do not know how Kerala caecilians behave or reproduce. They believe these caecilians are egg layers and that they hatch looking like small adults rather than as larvae. Larvae (LAR-vee) are animals in an early stage that change body form in a process called metamorphosis (MEH-tuh-MORE-feh-sis) before becoming adults. However, larvae of at least one species, red caecilians, have been found, which suggests that the other species also may have larvae.
