Leptotyphlops humilis

Western threadsnakes (sometimes referred as blind snakes) range from west TX to southern CA and south into central MX. They are found below 5000ft elevation and spend most of their time underground. They are blind, but their eyes detect light only. They lay eggs in summer and hunt underground as well. Coral snakes tend to prey upon them.

It is usually pale brown, pink, purplish, or beige with a silver sheen. The head and tail are blunt, with a spine at the tail tip. They can grow to 16". They are rarely encountered by people. If they do come to the surface, it's usually at night.
