This kind of worm-like burrower is an amphibian that lays eggs, and the female protects these eggs until they hatch. The Sagalla caecilian navigates by using specialized sensory tentacles on either side of its head while consuming termites and earthworms.
It is suited for a burrowing existence and spends most of its life underground. Its eyes are shielded by protective skin, and its robust, bony head helps it push through the dirt. To prevent the extinction of this species, which is not present in any protected areas, it is urgently necessary to restore its habitat along stream banks.
