Nope, Blind Snakes belong to a different family of snakes (Leptotyphlops). However, some people erroneously refer to the Blind Snakes as Worm Snakes due to the subterranean lifestyle (one of many problems that arise from the use of common names). Also, the Eastern Worm Snake has functional eyes so I don't believe it should ever be referred to as a Blind Snake.
Cheers,
RMB

Thanks RM! I have heard of the Worm snakes being refered to as "blind" snakes before, and thought it seemed odd. That's why people should stick to Latin names, less confusion

We've got something similar in Florida....sorry don't have any pics tho'. They're really tiny and we've got at least two different types.

One type is pink and has sort of a shovel nose and has the bands around its body just like an earthworm only it has little black eyes and a tongue that flicks.
The other type is black to brown or grayish and is much more slender and quick moving,real shiny too.
I've found them while digging or moving stones...particularly the dark type,they're far more common than the pink.

Anyone know offhand what species these may be by the descriptions----they're no more than about 8" max.
