We live near Sea World, and I saw one of those today!! We were digging up some old stepping stones, and there it was. My wife told my 8 year old twin boys there was a worm, so they ran over and picked it up. It did not move like a worm. They put it in their critter container (it gets lots of use) and put a few bugs in with it. I heard them bragging about how they watched it eat a bug of some kind.

The "worm" we found today was indeed a Texas Blind (thread) snake and was about 6inches long. The kids played with it long enough to "feed" it some potato bugs and then let it go. I am not a snake lover however I am happy to share my yard with any critter that will eat ants and termites. Follow this link for more info on this backyard friend.

I had one as a pet when I was a kid. They're harmless bug eaters. It never bit me once. They're not poisonous either.

You can generally tell a poisonous snake by the shape of it's head. If it had a pronounced head separate from the body and kinda diamond-shaped, it's poisonous. If it has a smooth head that flows with the body, it's not (with the exception of the coral snake).


The silver/gray ones are more commonly known as earth snakes.

Anyone living around Hollywood Park happen to see one, please let me know. I'd like to get my hands on a couple. I want to deposit them on my land and hopefully they'll help rid of some of the little critters around.

Hello, I'm bringing up this old thread because I've seen four worm snakes inside my house during the past month or two. I find it interesting that my original post was during the same time of the year.

I uploaded a video of the one that I just found a hour or so ago. I don't know if this link will work though:

Has anyone else seen these worm snakes recently? I'm slightly concerned that this time around there have been more than one in my house.
