Full Answer

Blind snakes are generally small and rarely grow as long as 2 feet. Though they have eyes, they are tiny and covered with the same type of scales that cover the rest of the animal's body. In some species, the tail ends in a spine that scientists believe helps the snake dig because blind snakes burrow into the ground. The head also has a plate to help the snake burrow.
