is an extinct species of caecilian
(limbless amphibian). It shared some characteristics with salamanders
and the now extinct Microsauria
. Unlike modern caecilians, Eocaecilia
possessed legs. And while modern caecilians have poorly developed eyes
and spend a lot of time under ground, Eocaecilia
's eyes were still well-developed, indicating it was not subterranean.
