At least two species eat ant eggs, as well as ant larvae (LAR-vee) and pupae (PEW-pee), which are the life stages between the egg and the adult ant.
In fact, scientists know about six of the sixteen species only from a few individuals caught in the area where the first ones were found, and they have not seen one species, the South American blind snake (Anomalepis aspinosus), since 1916.

 Digimorph - Ramphotyphlops braminus (Brahminy blind snake) - whole
Ramphotyphlops braminus is a member of Typhlopidae, a clade of small fossorial snakes commonly known as blindsnakes.
Like other blindsnake clades (Anomalepididae and Leptotyphlopidae), typhlopids are small (approximately 50–950 mm) secretive serpents with smooth, uniformly sized body scales (they lack the enlarged belly scales that characterize most other snakes), highly reduced eyes, a small and ventrally placed mouth, and a very short tail which bears a sharp terminal spine in most species.
However, the interrelationships among the three clades of blindsnakes remain poorly understood, and the monophyly of Scolecophidia has not yet been strongly corroborated by either morphological or molecular studies.

All are fossorial and usually associate with termite and ant nests where snakes feed on soft-bodied termites and larval ants.
Scolecophidians are comprised of three families, Anomalepididae, Leptotyphlopidae and Typhlopidae.
No good external characters exist to distinguish between the three families, so will need to know only one, the North American family Leptotyphlopidae.

 Snakes
Scolecophidians are small creatures with eyes buried beneath the skin and highly polished, round scales of uniform size throughout the body.
Called blindsnakes as a group, they are placed in the Anomalepididae (4 genera, 15 species), Leptotyphlopidae (2 genera, 80 species), and Typhlopidae (6 genera, 215 species).
Anomochilus (2 species of Indonesian dwarf pipesnakes) is structurally transitional between other alethinophidians and blindsnakes.
