No that's not what you think it is. It's a type of species related to the salamander or frog.

Scientists discover new species of 'blind snake' in Brazilian river that looks remarkably like a piece of the human anatomy (and stop sniggering)

Forgive us if this puts you off your dinner because, as snakes go, this is not much of a charmer.
The unique creature, atretochoana eiselti, was found after engineers drained a hydroelectric dam which spans a river connected to the Amazon.
Biologists discovered six of the unusual-looking creatures - each about a metre long - at the bottom of the river-bed on the Madeira river in Rondonia, in Brazil.

This blind snake might look a little disgusting, but it is an exciting discovery for scientists, who believe it is closely related to salamanders and frogs

Atretochoana eiselti is blind and has been spotted near the mouth of the Amazon river, in warm and fast-flowing water
The creatures were discovered in November, however it took until today for scientists to correctly classify the snake's genus - confirming it is a rare creature which has only been spotted sporadically since first spotted in 1968.

At first I was really waiting for this story to turn out like one of those China stories with a grizzly twist, but nope... actually a snake. How freaky.
