The Ichthyophis cardamomensis is a species of caecilian, a group of legless amphibians resembling giant earthworms or snakes discovered and announced by January 16, 2015. They are 1.5 meter (nearly 5 feet) long, gray-brown organism found in Cambodia's southwest Cardamom Mountains, an area better known for being home to the Asian Elephant. Unfortunately, this area is under threat of habitat loss through widespread deforestation. Like other caecilians, they are subterranean.
