Chikilidae

Surpisingly, these insanely gross little creepy crawlies are not worms or snakes; they are a legless amphibian known as the Chikilidae, and they are every bit as ugly as they are unpronounceable. They flourish in the tropical regions of Southeast Asia, India, Bangladesh, and a few other countries we plan on avoiding just so we don't ever have to encounter them in real life.
