In the mountains about 11.5 kms southwest of Bonao, Dominican Republic at precisely 18.884097,-70.446675.
Typhlops schwartzi (blind snake, smaller, dark individual) and an Amphisbaena manni (burrowing legless lizard, larger, lighter individual). Found in mixed clay and leaf mold at the edge of a shaded dirt road being widened by hand during the construction phase of a church youth camp. These species were found together at the same site, both in the same shovel-full of dirt. Photographed in a white plastic five-gallon pail with a point-and-shoot digital camera on macro setting.
