What is the difference between a caecilian and a snake?
Moreover, are caecilians snakes?
Caecilians (pronounced seh-SILL-yens) are tropical amphibians that look like large worms or slick snakes. They have no arms or legs, and sometimes it's hard to tell which end is the head and which is the tail! Their shiny skin is ringed with skin folds called annuli.
Also, how do caecilians reproduce? Reproduction. As amphibians, some caecilians lay their eggs in water or moist soil, similar to frog and salamander reproduction. Interestingly, some caecilians have evolved a special way of caring for their young once they hatch. Caecilians are the world's only amphibians with tentacles.
