  Digimorph - Ramphotyphlops braminus (Brahminy blind snake) - head
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.
Although similar fontanelles are known in several Old World species of Leptotyphlopidae, they have not been noted previously in Typhlopidae.

 Digimorph - Leptotyphlops dulcis (Texas Blind Snake)
Leptotyphlops dulcis is a member of Leptotyphlopidae, a clade of small, slender, fossorial snakes commonly known as slender blindsnakes, threadsnakes or wormsnakes.
All but one of the approximately 93 species of Leptotyphlopidae are contained within the genus Leptotyphlops.

 Lab VII. Snakes
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.
