Caecilians are amphibians, just like salamanders and frogs, but because of their lengthy, legless bodies, people frequently mistake them for snakes. Ringed Caecilians are found in tropical regions of Africa, Asia, and the Americas. They are considered the first caecilian species to possess oral venom glands and dwell in self-made tunnels.
Carnivores include ringed caecilians. Their primary source of food is tiny insects like worms. The ringed caecilian is a native of South America. Here, they can be discovered on the ground in the moist soils of the open savanna of Caatinga and woods. Currently, the species is classified as “least concern.”
