Thanks Brian! I have definitely been lucky these past three years to be able to fit in some travel to incredible locations. I hope I can keep doing this for a long time.

You have soo many great records from so many places. I am envious. :)

I think it's the right call in this case. It would be helpful if they would grow larger and hold still for a nano second to photograph. haha.

Thanks Brian! When trying to determine the correct species, I looked up blind snakes in Baja Sur and found some records for Rena Boettgeri near the location of this snake. Photos of a juvenile looked the same as this snake. I didn't even consider Brahminy. It seems very difficult to tell the difference, but I can find some good photos of Brahminy that show the facial scales that seem to match this snake. Therefore, I believe you are correct that I should id this as Brahminy unless I can find something else to justify the Cape Threadsnake. I have changed the id.

Hmm It looks like it could be a Brahminy.
