Caecilians: Gymnophiona - Diet
Caecilians are meat eaters. Land-dwelling species prey on animals that they can reach on the ground, including earthworms; termites; insects, such as crickets, that have shed their outer layer; and many other invertebrates (in-VER-teh-brehts), or animals without backbones. Large caecilians have been known to eat lizards and baby rodents. The water-dwelling species nose about at the water's bottom to find food, or they scrape food from logs and rocks. They eat water insects, shrimp, and small fish.
