Ringed Caecilian (Siphonops annulatus)

Series of top view illustrations of the Ringed Caecilian

The Ringed Caecilian (Siphonops annulatus) is a cylindrical terrestrial caecilian species possessing oral venomous glands. Its dark blue wide body is encircled with white or cream annular grooves. However, the head is usually narrower. It has a short tail and tentacles below each eye to help it process information. It is widely distributed in most South American countries in dry savannah, moist savannah, rural gardens, and flooded lowland pastures. This caecilian is oviparous and shows great parental care. Females caring for the young have opaque whitish blue color making it easy to separate them from the males. The ringed caecilian feeds on soil-dwelling invertebrates.

The Ringed Caecilian has an overall length between 11”-17.7” (28-45 cm) and body diameter of .47”-.79” (12-20 mm). The typical lifespan of the Ringed Caecilian is between 1-2 years.
