False Blind Snakes: Anomochilidae

Physical Characteristics, Diet, Behavior And Reproduction, False Blind Snake (anomochilus Leonardi): Species AccountGEOGRAPHIC RANGE, HABITAT, FALSE BLIND SNAKES AND PEOPLE, CONSERVATION STATUS


False blind snakes are found in Borneo, the Malaysian Peninsula, and Sumatra.

False blind snakes probably live in loose soil or under leaves, but this is uncertain. Only a few individuals have been found, and these have been spread out in such a way that some scientists now think that the two species are really just different populations of one species, while others believe that the snakes should be split into more than two species.

False blind snakes continue to live their lives outside the view of people.

The World Conservation Union (IUCN) considers the two false blind snakes to be Data Deficient, which means that scientists as yet have too little information to make a judgment about the threat of extinction.
