BRAZILIAN “PENIS” SNAKES
No, we're not attempting to sensationalize our posts (although it does garner more attention) and no, we're not competing with the Sci-Fi tabloid magazines at the local supermarket. What we have here is a legitimate scientific discovery of "blind snakes" found at the bottom of the Madeira River, Brazil. According to scientists, the bizarre-looking (straight up phallic) creatures are actually related to salamanders and frogs, but they resemble snakes. Not much is known about the species, scientifically dubbed Atretochoana Eiselti, except that they have no eyes and are believed to breath through their skin.
