The Mexican Mole Lizard or Baja Worm Lizard

The Mexican Mole Lizard or Baja Worm Lizard is technically neither lizard nor snake, but an Amphibian. These strange, burrowing reptiles commonly lack limbs or even eyes, spending their entire lives underground where they hunt worms and insects. B. biporus is unusual among the group for having a very prominent pair of clawed, mole-like front legs…though it still has no hind limbs at all.
