Forest Life in Barbados

By Linda Tancs

Nature and wildlife lovers will be interested to note that the tiniest snake in the world has been discovered (in an official sense, at least) in a thicket of forest in Barbados.  Resembling an earthworm, the barely four-inch, spaghetti-like reptile has been given the scientific moniker Leptotyphlops carlae.  A similar species is endemic to the island of Martinique.  Just another reason to keep your shoes on.
