Oedipina petiola | ©Jason Butler 

Narrow-footed Worm salamander, Honduras.

Oedipina petiole is a species of worm salamander (Caudata, Plethodontidae), newly described in 2011 from the central portion of the Cordillera Nombre de Dios, Honduras.

Plethodontid worm salamanders of the genus Oedipina are among the most challenging neotropical salamanders to study, due to their secretive fossorial habits and the resulting infrequency with which they are encountered.

Most important slimenoodle.

Very important slimenoodle.

Are those fangs? They look like fangs.

Look at that widdle faaaaaaace.
